Making Vegetal Charcoal Briquettes Project in Ethiopia

In July 2019, the 500kg/h biomass vegetal charcoal briquette project established by GEMCO in Ethiopia was completed and put into production. This project is composed of three process: briquetting process, carbonization process, charcoal briquette ball and carbonizaed briquette plates production process.

Our customer from Ethiopia owns a big toothpick production factory, producing a mass of wood meal, bamboo meal and bamboo waste everyday, the raw materials for producing vegetal charcoal briquettes is abundant. Based on the actual condition and the requirement of our customer, GEMCO has built the following process for him:
charcoal briquette process
The equipment used in the whole charcoal production line is: hammer mill, dryer, charcoal briquette machine, carbonization furnace, crusher, mixer, coal briquette press, packing machine.

Briquetting Process: Making Wood Briquettes

briquetting process
Put the bamboo waste into the crushing machine to crush them into powder, and the bamboo and wood powder with high moisture content should be put into the drying machine for decreasing the moisture content. Then the processed raw material enters the charcoal briquette machine to be formed. The finished vegetal briquette is waiting to be carbonized after natural cooling.
A Similar Wood Briquette Project is in Russia

Carbonization Process: Making Charcoal Briquettes

carbonization process
When the finished wood briquettes enter the furnace tank, 4 kiln of charcoal briquettes can be fired at one time. Then the charcoal briquette is finished to be packed for sale. Our customer chose the woven bag package for sale in local markets.
  • Special Statement:
The main equipment in carbonization process includes carbonization furnace, cooling system and air circulation system. The heat is needed to supply only when the initial carbonization. When the carbonization processes normally, the carbonization furnace will produce the flammable gas which is collected to supply energy for the carbonization furnace, thus saving plenty of energy consumption.  

Vegetal Charcoal Briquette Ball and Plate Process

Finished vegetal charcoal briquette enters the crushing machine for crushing into charcoal powder, and mix the powder and adhesive completely by the mixing machine. One part of the processed raw materials enter the ball press machine(coal briquette press) to be formed into ball shapes, and the other part enter the tablet pressing machine(shisha charcoal briquette press) to be formed into plate shape. Different shape of carbon briquette balls and tablets are packed for sale.

Since the foundation in 1997, GEMCO has designed and built hundreds of biomass pellet and briquette production projects. Different countries have different requirements and conditions, we design and build the production line based on the actual condition and user’s requirements.
