Carbonex

Carbonex is a French company that produces and imports wood-based charcoal. It also produces electricity through biomass heating. It became a TFT member in 2014. We map its supply chain so its buyers, who are mostly retailers, know where their charcoal is coming from. We also control the volume of wood used for charcoal production and the volume of finished products. The company is finding solutions to reduce the wood used to produce electricity. It uses pyrolysis gas to produce wood charcoal, which means it is decreasing the amount of wood charcoal it imports from Nigeria. Carbonex has committed to stopping imports altogether in 2016.
