Retort Produced Charcoal.
This is the most up to date method of charcoal production. The retort will consistently produce top grade charcoal with a carbon content as high as 98%. In addition, the retort recirculates the harmful gasses (smoke) and burns them in its firebox thus fuelling the whole process. Result: best charcoal and less polluting.
About EXETER CHARCOAL Retort.
In 2011 we needed a way of producing our own charcoal. We looked at ring kiln and quickly rejected them due to their inefficiency and their unavoidable release of pollutants to the atmosphere.
Having read about retorts, we decided that this was the way forward. Unfortunately no one in the world was making a retort that was portable, of a sensible size and that would give consistent results with minimal training.
Having previously, jointly been in mining engineering and the aerospace industry, we decided to use our knowledge to design and produce our own retort.
This resulted in the Exeter Retort. From it’s first burn it exceeded our expectations and has gone on to be manufactured, under licence, world wide.
