Charcoal Industry Revitalization Projects

Charcoal Industry Revitalization Projects

In the late 1990s, Missouri State air pollution regulations for charcoal manufacturing required that all charcoal kilns in Missouri install pollution control systems by December 2005 or shutdown. The Missouri Department of Natural Resources and the Environmental Protection Agency - Region 7, wrote a regulation that requires thermal oxidation of these hydrocarbon-based emissions. Presently, the gaseous pollutants are burned at 1,600 degrees F. The heated air energy is exhausted into the atmosphere. BioDiverse Energies, LLC is working closely with independent charcoal producers to develop and implement new gasification processes that will capture this energy and cost effectively produce electricity from Internal Combustion Engines (ICE), turning this dwindling industry into independent power producers.
