Coconut Shell Charcoal

Coconut shell charcoal is a valuable commodity produced from coconut shells. Sri Lanka is a leading producer and supplier of coconut shell charcoal.

Coconut Shell Charcoal is manufactured by carbonising raw coconut shells in a limited supply of air. Economical and eco-friendly, coconut shell charcoal is one of the cleanest and most favoured sources of developing activated carbon. Whereas other materials such as wood, coal, or other carbon-based sources are also suitable charcoal sources, the quality of coconut shell charcoal is far superior to others.

USES OF COCONUT SHELL CHARCOAL

Coconut shell charcoal also has other uses such as:

In the Food Industry

Thanks to its fast burning and food-grade properties, coconut charcoal is widely used in barbecues as a superior alternative to regular charcoal. The food industry favors it on account of the pleasant aroma it gives out in the preparation of traditional food and barbecues.

As a Teeth Whitener

Charcoal has long been used as a remedy for teeth and oral health. Just like charcoal soap, coconut shell charcoal serves as a natural teeth whitener and with amazing results.

As Animal Feed

Coconut charcoal is also used as feed for cattle, pigs, and poultry. Some studies have shown that animals fed with coconut charcoal give more milk. Likewise, for pigs and poultry, it is a suitable feed to increase weight and improve their health which ultimately leads to better meat production.

As a Fuel Alternative

Coconut shell charcoal is widely used as a fuel substitute in domestic and industrial settings.

              • As a fuel substitute against firewood, kerosene, and other fossil fuels.
              • As a source of fuel in melting gold and silver and other metal works.
              • Charcoal briquettes are commonly used in Middle Eastern countries to burn shisha.
              • Middle Eastern countries also burn fragrances at home using charcoal briquettes.
              • In America and Europe, charcoal briquettes are used to heat spas as well as stoves for cooking.

As a Refining Agent

Coconut shell charcoal is used both as a deodorizer and decolorizer. The odorless and non-toxic characteristic qualities of coconut shell charcoal make it a widely used deodorizer and decolorizer in the air conditioning industry, cosmetic industry and water purification plants.

TWO TYPES OF COCONUT SHELL CHARCOAL

Coconut shell charcoal is manufactured in two different forms:

Coconut shell charcoal – pieces
Coconut shell charcoal – granulated

The charcoal prepared is then pulverized to form granules and the granules are then used for the processing of activated carbon.

CHARCOAL BRIQUETTES

The shell charcoal powder is the waste product obtained during the processing of charcoal. The powder is bound with the help of binding materials and moulded in the form of briquettes using a moulding machine.

MANUFACTURING COCONUT SHELL CHARCOAL

Shell Charcoal is produced by burning the shell of fully matured coconuts with a limited supply of air so that they do not burn away to ash but are only carbonized. After the coconut shell is heated, it loses about 70% of its weight. Coconut shell charcoal is manufactured by using three methods called ‘drum method’, ‘pit method’, and ‘gasifier technology’, the last being the latest of the three manufacturing methods. Fully dried and matured coconut shells yield the best quality coconut shell charcoal.

Good coconut shell charcoal is uniformly dark and snaps with a clean shining fracture and produces a metallic sound when dropped on hard ground. Under-burnt shells do not emit a metallic sound and a clean fracture, while the overburnt ones are friable and the surface of the fracture sounds dull when dropped on hard ground and easily crumbles.
