Charcoal Export Business Discussion by mrsage(m): 1:28am On Mar 02, 2011
CHARCOAL EXPORT

Charcoal is one area of non oil export which has the potential to generate thousands of euros and many Nigerians are now successful entrepreneurs since they discovered the gold mine.


Though, one of the nation’s biggest export earner, it cost no fortune to set up and there is no shortage of market overseas. Added to this, one can run it from home.

Given the right mentorship, the business is simple to start and in huge demand that anyone can make money doing it.


Germany, Belgium, Greece the Netherlands, Italy, Poland, Spain, Bulgaria and UK are substantial importers of charcoal. As charcoal is an essential commodity in Africa, it is one of the most important sources of alternative fuel across Europe. Consumption is put at eight million tonnes of pellets annually. The largest exporters of charcoal in the EU are Poland, France Holland Germany and Belgium. They buy and sell to the rest of Europe.


The volume of imported charcoal needed in Europe vary from one country to another.

The total level of volume of exports from Nigeria, can not satisfy the demand in the European market.


Although the market is served from a number of competitive countries, exports from Nigeria, and other African countries are highly ranked because of the hard nature of the charcoal. European importers prefer charcoal produced from hardwood in Africa which is heavy and strong. Competitors are Malaysia, Indonesia, Brazil and Thailand. The quality of charcoal depends on the wood species.


Companies overseas can absorb any volume and all the companies in Nigeria cannot meet the demand of the Europe market.

Nigeria has vast forest area that can produce thousand of tonnes of charcoal annually.


Though there are charcoal sources in Europe, most of them are made from softwood and are soft and light. Apart from that, they are bad conductors of heat and electricity, and burns without flame.


Today,there is increased usage of charcoal. Besides being the fuel that cooks steaks, hotdogs, and hamburgers ,a number of companies have discovered that charcoal can be used in certain metallurgical purifying treatments and as a filter to remove organic compounds such as chlorine, gasoline, pesticides, and other toxic chemicals from water and air.


An initial investment of N550, 000 will cover the cost of product sourcing and landing the charcoal at the product. The money will be enough to acquire enough charcoal that will fill a 40-feet high cube container, weighing 23 tonnes. Charcoal from the south west part of the country would always provide required tonnes. But if the charcoal is sourced from Benue, one would require 27 tonnes to fill a 40-foot container, unlike the South West where only 23tonnes would fill a 40-foot container.

The rate of returns is high .

You can turn your investment ten times within one year and profit in each trip very rewarding.


The markets are gradually growing and that households in Europe prefer it as a relatively clean fuel for their fireplace and furnace if of local carbon content.




The charcoal industry is a sustainable opportunity and engine for meaningful and sustainable socio-economic development at the household and national levels.

In Africa, charcoal business is worth more than $1billon a year in terms of employment, rural livelihoods and the wider economy.

Great potentials exist for new entrants who will flourishing in an atmosphere of little or no competition.


I can provide a detailed feasibility study on the business. Some of the information include:
1. Introduction
2. Types of charcoal
3. How to know quality charcoal
4. Charcoal local sources in Nigeria
5. Local price of charcoal
6. International Price of charcoal
7. Packaging of charcoal to international standard
8. Securing Export Order
9. Marketing/Advertising of wood charcoal
10. Contact Addresses of possible buyers
11. Commonly used shipping & payment terms
12. The General Requirement for Export of Wood Charcoal
13. Meeting the Registration Requirement of Nigerian Export promotion council for Export of Wood charcoal
14. How to apply to Nigerian Export promotion council
15. Description of export sequences of Wood charcoal
16. Mode of payment by the overseas buyers
17. Determination of export price for wood charcoal
18. The function of freight forwarder in export of wood charcoal.
19. Export Documents
20. Wood Charcoal specification
21. How to detect fraudulent buyers
22. How to raise capital for Export of Wood charcoal and many more.

Note: I also have contact details of an exporter. He is an experienced charcoal exporter and always ready to guide new entrants into the business.

Y'all use common sense na! Dont they have trees? Why dont they cut theirs but pay you to cut yours? Use ur head and grow a conscience. White folks are helping us ruin our country and laughing at us.

@all Hi, Charcoal business, as it is done here is not
proper. I was thinking of going into the biz
along with a couple of friends. But when I
realise the degree of deforestation and
environmental degradation going on to produce
charcoal for both local and foreign market, I opted out immediately. No one bothers about re-planting the trees. For
every container of charcoal you see going
abroad, over 500 or more trees may have been
felled down without any consideration of what
happens to the environment. When the trees in one area have been
completely depleted, they move to new areas
and start all over again and again! Unfortunately, no one seems to care. Corruption
and lawlessness in our country makes such biz
thrive unlike in develop countries where you are
expected to plant more tree and you dare not
cut any tree! While there is nothing wrong in making money,
we should think of the generations coming
behind us and do nothing to make life difficult
for them. Let's make the world a better place than we met
it. Most countries buying our charcoal have
more trees than we do but they prefer to
preserve their own. Ask yourself, when last did you plant a tree? Pple may not agree with me but I think there are
better businesses we can do without hurting the
environment Coal is a better biz even though this has also
contributed to erosion in the east. it is still a
lesser evil. I am a bizman but I am choosy in the line of
business I do because I am responsible to God,
humanity and the environment. I expect same
of every businessman and woman. My people, money is not everything o!! Let us protect and preserve our environment for
the coming generations!

In addition, the post was for march 2011. The amount mentioned there is no longer realistic. You will need much more than N550,000 to execute a 40ft container. Secondly, the Euro is falling drastically and it is seriously eroding the profit now.

Mr Sage is one of the people i respect in this forum but from the tone of his post, its obvious he is not active in the biz. I monitor the business and i am always happy when it is not favourable.

Bitter kola, Kolanut, Cassava chips, ginger, sesame seed, gum arabic, mica and many more are more ethical and profitable. I do not sell manuals and i don't believe in ''any business goes''.

Like i said before, it is up to you and i to leave a better environment for those coming behind.
