Making Charcoal with the Exeter Retort ~ by WoodlandsTV

By woodlandstv

Slow connection? Watch in lower quality

Alan and Jo Waters are expert charcoal makers with many years experience of this traditional skill from the land they coppice. Here they speak about the benefits of charcoal production using the Exeter Retort. They join with Geoff Self and Robin Rawle, designers and manufacturers of this Retort, to explain their experiences of the benefits of this method compared to traditional ring kilns - that the Retort produces more charcoal, that it has a shorter burn time, is cleaner, more efficient, easily accessible and transportable, and that it ultimately produces better quality charcoal - ideal for small woodland owners. wildwoodcoppice@btinternet.com http://www.carboncompost.co.uk/ An Adliberate film http://www.adliberate.co.uk for WoodlandsTV http://www.woodlands.co.uk/tv

Hi Brian
The retort was developed and manufactured in the UK.
American machines are made under licence. The retort is also made under licence in Australia and several other countries.

Robert Moser. I agree with you. Why are they venting and burning off the gas to atmosphere or thinking of trying to clean and "package" for resell when it could be redirected into the burn chamber.
