Filipino housewives are urged not worry about the increase in the cost of cooking fuel as the green charcoal fuel is available and is produced through the patented green charcoal technology.
Green charcoal technology, Gonzalo Catan Jr., executive vice president of Green Charcoal Philippines, said it converts bio-waste into green charcoal that is safe, cheap, environment- friendly and frees users from the danger of explosion.
Green Charcoal technology, explained Catan, converts bio-waste into green charcoal in the form of pellets, firelog and briquette and is environment-friendly. It is an activated carbon produced from coconut shell, coal and other forest wastes using a Toyota HI-ace 4-K engine that runs on 100 percent green charcoal hydrogen fuel, considered the cleanest fuel there is, in lieu of petroleum fuel which is harmful to the environment.
Activated carbon is amorphous carbon subjected to thermal treatment with oxidizing gasses and vapors or a mixture of bath (steam) to increase its adsorptive properties. It involves steam activation at 900c, thus smokeless.
Catan cited an article in Green Magazine, a science publication circulated in the United States and Canada, which expressed caution on cooking with gas.
