7-17 La Carbonera: Fun With Pit Kilns
Pacific Views, Natasha, July 21, 2006

So I need some charcoal for my project. I wanted it to be made of one type of local wood that would grow fast and also made good char. On the recommendation of several sources, we selected guaba wood, an Inga spp. After two or three years of growth, the trees can be pushing two stories high and are a popular species for shading coffee crops, so trimmings or full trees would be relatively easy to get.

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
