What makes charcoal eco friendly?



  1. 0 Votes

    Burning charcoal really isn’t eco-friendly in the true sense of the term at all. Charcoal actually produces 3 times as much carbon emissions as natural gas does to produce the same amount of energy. Some charcoal companies do claim to be carbon neutral, however. Their logic is that the charcoal briquettes they produce come from wood. This is usually waste wood that would eventually be thrown away anyway. If a charcoal company is trying to be eco-friendly, they should ensure that the wood in which their product comes from has been harvested in a sustainable way. If these harvested trees are replaced with new trees, then the replanted trees will absorb the amount of carbon dioxide already emitted by the burning of the charcoal in the first place. Gas cannot be replaced and cannot reabsorb it’s emissions.
