Product Concept

The idea of creating charcoal made from banana peel is mostly because of the environmental problem it causes. The demand of bananas not only in the Philippines is very promising. Bananas, aside from being sold as food, are also used as fertilizer, animal feed, and for medicinal purposes. Banana peels are becoming a serious environmental problem caused by the banana production. Advantages of Banana Peel Charcoal 1. The things you need are simply banana peel, flour, and water. The procedure of making the briquettes is also easy. 2. Banana Briquettes can light up faster compare to coconut briquettes that you need extra efforts in it in order to light. 3. Reduces deforestation. 4. Briquettes are also being used by poultry farmers as warmers in their poultry farms, they no longer need electricity. 5. Agricultural wastes will be minimized. 6. Burning is minimized. It does not take hours for the charcoal to partially burn. Materials Needed Banana peel the skin of banana (main ingredient of the charcoal) Banana peel is also a great source of energy which can be converted into fuel that can be used for cooking and other households that require fuel such as lighting and heating. We decided to use banana instead of wood because using banana is very environment friendly. This will help reduce deforestation. We prefer banana peel so that it will become useful instead of being put into waste. This will make a significant contribution to climate change.

Cassava flour Serves as binder to prevent charcoal from cracking. Flour contains gluten, which makes it less effective than cornstarch as a thickener, but it is gluten's binding properties that allow bread to rise and to keep its shape. Binding with flour generally involves adding it to a liquid. Water Mixed with the cassava flour

II. Product


The banana charcoal can be considered as one of the most environmental charcoal that ever existed because it does not cut trees or use any material that can harm the environment. Although there were lots of charcoals that have been produced, we are competent about our product. It can also give other features that other charcoals have. Its difference from other charcoals is it can ignite faster than the normal charcoal. We can offer our charcoal with a competitive price compared to our competitors. Wood charcoals can crack and become smaller pieces that cause the whole sack of charcoal to last shorter. The advantage of banana charcoal is it is bound with the proper amount of flour and water to make it hard and even.

Wood Charcoal Takes 3-4 minutes to light up The process involves many hours

Banana Charcoal Takes 2-3 minutes to light up Process is less time consuming because hating does not take hours

Price ranges from 300-350 per 25 kg if the Our price is 206.94 and we offer it with similar quality is good or if the sack contains big shapes and sizes charcoal pieces

Price The average weight of a bunch of Cardava banana ranges from 35-50 kilograms. Assuming that the bunch weighs 50 kilograms, divide it by 20. You will get 2.5 kilograms per banana. The banana peel is 20-30% of the bananas weight. So if you multiply 2.5 kilograms by 18%, you will get 44 grams as the weight of each banana peel.
