VERTICAL KILNS AT CARBOKARN Ltd. - THAILAND
The concept of promoting environment-friendly charcoaling was extended to Thailand through the vertical charcoaling kiln projects which commenced in 2015. Designed and built by Carbokarn and Haycarb in-house engineering teams, the project was initiated in Ratchaburi, Thailand with the capacity to manufacture 75 MT charcoal a day.
At present, there are 32 kilns in Ratchaburi, 2 kilns in Chonburi and 4 kilns in Prachuap Province (owned by a supplier) in Thailand, totalling 38 kilns. Carbokarn plans to further broad base the environment-friendly charcoaling kilns to more locations in Thailand in the future.
