Charcoal Machine Brings Opportunities to Multiple Industries in Costa Rica
In addition to the agricultural product processing industry, the impact of the charcoal machine extends to various sectors. Charcoal production provides new options for waste disposal in multiple industries. Besides, valuable charcoal also broadens their product systems. The following are examples of two industries.
Wood Processing Industry
Costa Rica is rich in forest resources, especially teak. This has led to the development of the wood processing industry. As a by-product of this industry, wood chips and sawdust are produced. The wood charcoal machine effectively converts these wastes into valuable charcoal. Charcoal provides a sustainable fuel source for wood processing and other industries. This contributes to the circular economy.
Food Processing Industry
As an important export product of Costa Rica, coffee is produced on a large scale. As part of the food processing industry, coffee cultivation and processing produces a large amount of waste coffee husks. The charcoal making machine reduces and recycles these wastes. In addition to fuel, charcoal has a positive impact as a soil additive for the cultivation of commercial crops.
