#5397: Re: #5389: Scrapwood to Charbon (fwd)
From: John Munsell <JMunsell@maf.org>
I know of two projects along these lines. One is to take left-over
charcoal pieces and dust and use a binder of some sort (I don't remember
what exactly) to form the waisted charbon into bricketts. I don't know too
much about this, and I'm not sure I want too. Seems the point is to get
away from charbon to the degree possible.
The other one is a simple press made from locally available hardware. This
uses paper, scrap wood, etc, to make blocks of material to be used for
cooking. There has been quite a bit of development on this and I think a
few are being used here. If you'd like more info I can point you in the
right direction. This press was on display at the Agricultural fair
downtown P-au-P a few months back.
