The Suitability of Eucalyptus Sawmilling and Logging Wastes for Charcoal in Zambia

The use of logging, thinning and other types of wastes from large-scale industrial plantations of Eucalyptus grandis and E. cloeziana for charcoal production is discussed. Charcoaling experiments were carried out using a portable metal kiln and a small rectangular brick kiln using Eucalyptus waste wood in the form of roundwood and slabwood. Average yields were 21.4% for the brick kiln and 19.7% for the steel kiln.
