Traditional methods of making charcoal in the Philippines, can be inefficient, and the Village Coco Project would like to improve that, as well as creating a fair trade certified coconut char product, that they could sell to help improve life for the coconut farmers in Palawan.

The Village Coco Project has just built their First High Efficiency Kiln, and they look forward to testing the new kiln between now and the end of May.

REGIONAL PROGRAMME ON INTEGRATED PLANT NUTRITION SYSTEMS (IPNS)
FADINAP's Regional IPNS programme in Nepal, Sri Lanka, Viet Nam, Philippines, and Pakistan from 1997 to mid-2002

FADINAP's IPNS programme aims at assisting member countries to render sustainable agricultural production patterns through stabilization of soil fertility, ensuring better yields, and increased rural incomes.

ADAPTABILITY OF THE TECHNOLOGY

This techology is best suited to small-scale farming, and to sandy, acidic and relatively infertile soils. It is effective for such crops as soybean, cowpea, corn and sorghum. It is also worth trying for other field crops and vegetables. Fig. 1 Tin can with ventilation holes and chimney

HOW TO PREPARE THE CHARCOAL
Prepare the rice husk charcoal as follows.

Black Carbon from Rice Residues as Soil Amendment and for Carbon Sequestration

On highly weathered soils in tropical and subtropical climates, maintenance of soil organic matter is essential to sustain system productivity and avoid rapid soil degradation. But climatic conditions as well as soil characteristics favor the rapid decomposition of organic matter. However, several recent studies indicated that black carbon, the product of incomplete combustion of organic material, could combine characteristics highly beneficial for soil nutrient dynamics with high stability against chemical and microbial breakdown. Lasting soil amelioration by incorporation of black carbon from wooden plants was proposed based on the beneficial evidence from
