About Our Charcoal

Charcoal is a black, porous, carbon-rich material that is produced by heating organic matter (usually wood) in the absence of oxygen. This process, known as pyrolysis, causes the organic matter to break down and release volatile gases and water vapor, leaving behind a residue of solid, carbon-rich material.

Charcoal has been used for a variety of purposes throughout human history, including as a fuel source for cooking and heating, as a component in gunpowder and other explosives, and as a material for drawing and writing. It is also used as a filtering agent in water purification systems, as a soil amendment in agriculture, and as a source of activated carbon for industrial applications.

Because charcoal is produced by burning organic matter, it can be considered a renewable resource, although the sustainability of charcoal production depends on the methods used and the rate of reforestation in the area.
