Production of charcoal from different wood species


The study presented hereby is the first part of a more general investigation concerning the valorization of wood wastes by activation of carbon obtained by pyrolysis of different wood species. 6 different European wood species have been tested and their ability to produce charcoal has been qualified. Different series of tests on cubic wood samples have permitted to determine the dimensions variations and mass loses induced by the thermal degradation of wood during its carbonization. In particular, the conversion ratio of wood material into charcoal has been determined as a function the wood species and the pyrolysis conditions. The experimental results show that the carbonization is complete for all the species from a temperature of 500 °C and that the conversion ratio of the anhydrous mass of wood into carbon does not depend on the wood species studied.
