The idea to develop this cheaper biomass based wood free coal in to preserve our ecosystem and also to make it widely available, has been conceived, conceptualized and studied for six years.
This idea is not new if the "large scale" parameter is removed. Indeed, it was during a trip to West Africa, the creators were able to discover the habits and customs of the small villages of these regions and they enjoyed their special expertise in the fabrication of Peat based-coal. This useless biomass in its natural state has been once again valorized in a coal form to use it as a solid combustible at home. This ancestral and archaic technique made it possible to obtain excellent quality of coal and especially to revive whole families.
Being transported to the developed countries, this type of valorization could revolutionize the world of coal avoiding direct or indirect involvement in the phenomenon of deforestation and therefore more environmentally friendly.
Here is the idea , but large scale feasibility is difficult . It was necessary to find a biomass that exists in Europe or on the Mediterranean basin that is sufficient enough to ensure a permanent supply enabling to organize nearby and easily accessible collection centers . After various studies and many biomasses analyzed , the one which best fit all these criteria is : THE OLIVE POMACE and to be more precise THE OLIVE KERNE.L the Olive kernel that exists throughout Mediterranean basin for the industry of Olive oil is a biomass with a high natural calorific value . Its gathering is organized on a few kilometers and short-circuited because professionals are often grouped in a limited geographical area.
It took six years of challenge and sacrifices the founders of OLIVECOAL to fulfill the dream of a powerful and wood-free coal.
Today OLIVECOAL invites you to discover its first innovation :
the Olive Kernel based coal , specially for BBQ « OLIVEGRILL »
