“Masonry carbonization kilns have reached the technological and sustainability limit. Carboval allows an increase in productivity and quality control of the charcoal, being a technology totally friendly to the environment, and according to current and near future laws.”, evaluates the manager of continuous carbonization at the Florestal unit, Fernando Latorre.
A conventional masonry carbonization kiln has a 16-day cycle between loading and unloading, to produce an average of 50 tons per cycle, with a maximum utilization of 55% of the energy available in wood. The Carboval continuous reactor has a 16-hour cycle, with a daily production of 22 tons of charcoal. The technology of the Carboval continuous reactor is mainly responsible for its high productivity and quality of charcoal. In addition, it allows the use of all by-products of pyrolysis, either in the form of gases to produce thermal or electrical energy, or as vegetable tar and pyroligneous extract for the chemical industry or cogeneration of electrical energy.
