New this year - Small - Scale Charcoal Making Demonstration

This demonstration will feature three different methods and several displays on past, current, and future uses of charcoal,  The displays will include electricity generation using charcoal (running a fan) , an internal combustion engine fuled by charcoal (running a wood splitter), charcoal filtration, and odor control using charcoal. The production of charcoal from low grade timber, small diameter trees and waste wood (such as slabwood) offers the potential for supplemental income and the generation of a product that has a variety of uses. There's more to charcoal than just grilling tasty hamburgers!
