Charcoal is the solid residue remaining when wood is ‘carbonise’ or ‘pyrolyse’ under controlled conditions in a closed space such as a charcoal kiln. This process is known as pyrolysis. Control is exercised over the entry of air during the pyrolysis or carbonisation process so that the wood does not merely burn away to ashes, as in a conventional fire, but decomposes chemically to form charcoal.

Nigeria, and other African countries are highly ranked because of the hard nature of the charcoal they produce as opposed to Charcoal from Europe that is normally soft and light. Normally the harder the wood charcoal the better the flame and better the ability to conduct heat and electricity

Today, there is increased usage of charcoal. Besides being the fuel that cooks steaks, hotdogs, and hamburgers , a number of companies have discovered that charcoal can be used in certain metallurgical purifying treatments and as a filter to remove organic compounds such as chlorine, gasoline, pesticides, and other toxic chemicals from water and air.

The business cycle for producing Charcoal last for about 10 months with the Summer months, when production drops slightly because of the rains.
