Coconut has high economic value and all parts of the plant have uses. Coconut shells, which we will mainly discuss in this article, can be made into various utensils and crafts, as well as activated carbon and coconut charcoal.

In many Asian and African nations, coconuts are typically utilized as a cooking ingredient, leaving the shells as unused waste. The resulting coconut shell waste is often left in piles and can pose environmental issues. Converting these coconut shells into charcoal can reduce environmental pollution in terms of environmental protection, achieve waste utilization in terms of resources, and obtain high profits at extremely low costs in terms of economy. The coconut shell charcoal will be a best fuel substitute against firewood, kerosene, and other fossil fuels.

Next, we will introduce step by step how to make raw coconut shells into coconut shell charcoal and different shapes of charcoal briquettes.

Carbonize the large pieces of coconut shells to charcoal

Firstly, people need to collect discarded coconut shells for smokeless carbonization.

Our vertical hoisting furnace adopts advanced hot gas flow carbonization technology, greatly improving the carbonization rate (from about 80% to 99%), and has a small footprint, simple and convenient operation, good safety and environmental protection effects, high production efficiency, and can save a lot of energy.

The built-in flue gas treatment system makes the flue gas generated by carbonization purified and then returned to the bottom of the furnace for combustion, saving a lot of fuel.

Crush the coconut shell charcoal to small size

After the coconut shells are carbonized, one crusher or charcoal grinder is required to process those large pieces of coconut shell charcoal to fine charcoal podwer.

This charcoal grinder machine is equipped with a simple conveyor. From the work video below, we can see that the charcoal powder falls from the discharge port at the bottom of the machine onto the conveyor belt and is transported to one side. This can prevent materials from piling up under the machine and affecting its continuous operation.

Mix the coconut shell charcoal powder with water and binder

At this step, we need one wheel mill charcoal mixer machine to mix the crushed charcoal powder, water, and binder thoroughly and evenly to prepare for the next briquetting step.

Some common binders used in the charcoal production line include starch, such as corn starch and cassava starch.

Compress the mixed charcoal powder into coconut shell charcoal briquettes

There are three options for briquetting machines. The first type is a charcoal briquette extruder machine; The second type is a charcoal ball press machine; The third type is a hookah charcoal briquette machine.
