Charcoal

Gogar is taking the lead in the production of charcoal using high efficiency reusable charcoal kilns. The kilns are made in situ from mud bricks.

The wood comes from Acacia which is harvested on a sustainable basis from grazing land, and from mature stands of Eucalyptus.

We are also planting Eucalyptus which will be utilised partly for charcoal when mature.

The use of charcoal from sustainable sources helps to reduce degradation to the environment from illegal charcoal production.
