Converting Biomass into Charcoal: Coconut Shell Charcoal Machine
A large number of coconut trees can be found in the coastal areas especially in South Asia, nearly 72% of the world total is produced collectively in Indonesia, Philippines, and India. More production results into more coconut shells, which apparently are hard to dispose of. It has been a major issue for the locals as well, Coconut shell charcoal machines also known as biomass carbonization plant or biochar production equipment, convert these coconut shells into charcoal briquettes or charcoal powder through the process of carbonization. This incredible invention can also process biomass apart from coconut shells such as rice husk, sawdust, bamboo wood, sewage sludge and more. Through this process, the machine not only promotes pollution free environment but is also providing a great source of income. The machine also recycles the heat produced during the charcoal making process and uses them for the drying host. During carbonization the temperature rises and Pyrolysis happens, Pyrolysis is the process by which this biomass is decomposed and converted into charcoal by elevated temperature.
Features of the Machine
·The coconut shell charcoal making machine consists of double layers furnace, condenser system, de-dusting machine, cooling system, draft fan, transmission, frame, flash evaporation layer, feeding part, material breaking part, discharging part, cooling part, flue gas re-burning part, water curtain dust and multi-pipes like recycling pipe, carbonizing and fission heat collecting pipe, flash steaming steam collecting pipe, combustion emission collecting pipe, etc.
·This machine includes the upper and lower layer, which helps in the heat utilization. The upper layer is dried using fuel gas. It also has a hot furnace collection section, where the heat generated while carbonization is collected. The lower layer utilizes the remaining heat to flash steam the material.
·The machine also has a control panel in the drying machine by which you can control the rotation rate, which helps you build the balance between the contact of the material and hot air.
·There are two ways with which the machine may be heated; through gasifier or biomass as material for heating carbonization furnace.
How does it work?
●The coconut shells and other biomass are sent to the coconut shell charcoal machine.
●The machine first cut down the coconut shell into small pieces, smaller than 40 mm. These pieces are then sent to a quantitative feeder which for the sent them for drying and flash steam. After the pieces are dried they are then sent down for carbonization.
●During carbonization, the temperature rises and after smoke discharging and desulfurization through Pyrolysis, clean coconut shell charcoal is generated.
●Then the charcoal is sent to the cooling system where the temperature is less than 30 degrees Celsius.
●The fuel used for carbonization releases hot residual gas which is then used for drying system it also helps in saving energy.

The final product
Coconut shells can be converted into charcoal, tar or combustible gas. These products are the need of the hour as it benefits not only the environment but also economically, especially to the locals.
How is this machine benefiting the environment?
Charcoal can be used in different ways like;
·It could be converted into activated carbon, for wastewater recycling.
·Charcoal is used widely in industries and also in daily life in some areas.
·It is also used to increase soil fertility since charcoal absorbs heavy metals.
·It can be exported to a foreign market.
·Most importantly it is used as a fuel.
