An environmentally friendly furnace for carbonization of raw materials, using low speed pyrolysis, to produce high-grade charcoal. Extra heat can be used for preliminary drying of the raw material or for other purposes.

  • ultra-high temperature
  • Automated control systems
  • Highly Efficient
  • Low electricity consumption


CharTech supplies a full range of accessories for the EKKO Carbonization Furnace including:

  • Pre-drying chamber
  • Preliminary dryer
  • Logistics elements eg trolleys, trestles, rails, tippers

What is biochar?

Charcoal that is produced from a renewable resource in an environmentally responsible manner with the purpose of being applied to soil is called biochar.

Benefits of biochar

  • Sequesters carbon, mitigating the emission of CO2
  • Water retention in soil
  • Increases availability of Ca, Mg, P and K in soil
  • Benefit structural characteristics of soil
  • Increased plant growth
  • Reduced inputs of water and nutrients

Examples of raw materials that can be turned into biochar

Timber offcuts

Forestry slash

Nut shells

Woody plant waste

Fruit pits

Plant prunings
