Background of Coconut Industry

Production Countries

Coconut trees are grown in more than 80 countries. Here, we list the top 10 countries in coconut production. Indonesia, the Philippines and India are far ahead in coconut production among these countries. Coconut exports from these three countries account for 70% of global coconut exports. Please see the coconut production data.

Waste Disposal Status

In the coconut processing industry, a large amount of coconut biomass waste is generated and landfilled every year.

  • Firstly, coconuts are harvested in large quantities on coconut plantations. Some of the coconuts undergo preliminary treatment. In this process, the main wastes produced are coconut shell and coconut husk.
  • Secondly, the coconut is transported to the coconut food processing plant for processing. When the coconut meat and coconut water are collected and processed, a large amount of coconut husk/coconut fiber and coconut shell are abandoned.
  • Finally, coconut meat and coconut water are further processed into a variety of products, such as concentrated coconut water, coconut milk, coconut milk powder, coconut cream, copra, coconut oil, etc. In this process, the main waste is a large amount of coconut meat residues.
Coconut Waste Management Status for Pyrolysis

Coconut Shell Management

Among these kinds of coconut waste, coconut shell recycling is the main solution Beston Group offers. Approximately 50 million coconut shells are discarded every year. Landfill or discarding coconut shells produce greenhouse gases and pollutes the environment. Coconut shells is rich in cellulose, hemicellulose and lignin. It actually have a high energy value. This is a waste that needs to be recycled urgently.

Pyrolysis of Coconut Shell

Coconut Shell Recycling Solution – Pyrolysis

Beston Group provides a pyrolysis solution to reuse coconut shells with coconut shell charcoal making machine. Pyrolysis is the process of converting coconut shells to coconut shell charcoal by high-temperature anaerobic treatment. This biomass pyrolysis process is usually carried out in a closed and hypoxic environment. This ensures that the coconut shell does not burn completely. It also contributes to the formation of carbon-rich coconut shell charcoal.

Benefits Of Coconut Shell Pyrolysis

Benefits Of Coconut Shell Pyrolysis


Implementing coconut shell pyrolysis reduces coconut shell volume in landfills and lessens the environmental impact of waste disposal.

Resource Utilization

Pyrolysis uses waste coconut shells to produce diverse and sustainable biochar. In this way, the coconut shell can be maximized as a resource. At the same time, this method expands the industrial chain and promotes the economic income of the coconut processing industry. It makes a great contribution to the resource-saving economy.

Coconut Shell Charcoal Making Process

The entire coconut shell recycling process mainly includes crushing, drying, feeding, pyrolysis, discharging, tar and wood vinegar collection, combustible gas recovery, exhaust gas treatment, and coconut shell briquette production. This video shows the working process of coconut shell charcoal machine. It is available to know more information about how to make charcoal from coconut shell.

  • Crushing (optional): The crushing system processes coconut shells into target sizes (less than 20mm).
  • Drying (optional): The drying system processes the coconut shell to a moisture content of less than 15%.

  • Feeding: The coconut shells are uniformly sealed and transported into the main biochar reactor.
  • Pyrolysis: After heating the main furnace, the temperature gradually rises. The initial temperature helps dry out some of the moisture in the coconut shell. When the temperature reaches 250 degrees Celsius, demethylation begins. Combustible gas starts to generate. At 280 degrees Celsius, the exothermic reaction begins. The hydrocarbon molecules split into smaller carbon molecules and hydrogen. charcoal begins to be produced. As the temperature hits 450 degrees Celsius, aromatic ring compounds begin reacting.

  • Coconut shell charcoal: Through a three-stage water-cooling discharger, coconut shell charcoal below 45 degrees Celsius is collected.
  • Tar & wood vinegar collection (optional): Via the condenser, tar (biomass oil) and wood vinegar separate out and are collected separately. Coconut shell charcoal briquette making (optional): After being processed by the coconut shell charcoal briquette machine, the original shape of charcoal can be made into the required shape, such as round, square, stick, etc.

04Combustible Gas Recovery
After condensation and sulfur removal treatment, combustible gas can be recovered and reused.

05Exhaust Gas Treatment
The emission gas is treated by a spray tower, water curtain de-dusting tower, and cooling tower. The processed emission gas meets the EU emission standards. Besides, Beston Group provides high-standard customized exhaust gas treatment system.

Coconut Shell Charcoal Composition Analysis

In coconut shell charcoal, the carbon content reaches more than 85%. The carbon content is very high. Depending on the type of coconut shell, moisture, and particle size, the content of the final ingredient in coconut shell charcoal is not entirely consistent. Here is an inspection report of a sample coconut shell for your reference. Terminal coconut shell charcoal processed by coconut charcoal making machine has low ash content and high calorific value. If you want to test your sample by our biochar machine, please contact us in advance and send the sample to us.

Application of Coconut Shell Charcoal

Coconut shell to charcoal is a circular economy solution. Coconut shells are converted into biomass charcoal resources. Biomass charcoal can be applied to both the coconut shell cultivation industry and the food processing industry. This allows for sustainable development and a truly closed-loop solution.

Soil Remedial Agent for Coconut Plantation

Coconut shell charcoal can be used to improve the structure of plantation soil. It helps enhance soil permeability, water retention capacity, and nutrient content. Additionally, coconut shell charcoal can aid in regulating the soil’s pH. View more information about biochar use in agriculture.

Alternative Fuel for Food Processing Industry

Coconut shell charcoal processed by coconut charcoal machine is an environmentally friendly and renewable energy source. It has high calorific value, low ash content, and a long burning time. Many food processing plants use coconut shell charcoal as an alternative heating fuel.
