Our factory sources all bulk hardwood charcoal from several Namibian Farmers situated in the Northern region.
Intruder bush species are used for charcoal production in order to promote the resettlement of savannah grassland, and the eradication of these intruders. Most common species used are Senegalia mellifera (Swarthaak), Dichrostachys cinerea (Sekelbos) and Terminalia prunioides (Mushara).
Bulk charcoal is screened and the larger pieces (20-100mm) are packed for lump charcoal. The smaller screenings are then processed to produce the pillow-shaped briquettes. A maize starch is used as a binder and no chemicals are added.
The facility has an output capacity of 1500 tons briquettes and 3500 tons of charcoal per annum.
