Abstract

Charcoals produced in the beehive kiln from rubberwood, acacia, eucalyptus and pine were analysed for fixed carbon, volatile matter, ash yield and moisture content and their calorific values evaluated and compared with charcoal produced from mangrove woods (Rhyzophorae) by the same method. Results indicate that the charcoals produced from the first-mentioned wood types are similar to that produced from the Rhyzophorae and are suitable for industrial use.
