The DENR charcoal is a solid fuel that is produced using leaves, twigs, stems and other cellulosic forest wastes. These are compacted into briquettes. When burned, the DENR charcoal emits a steady heat with low clean flame. It is easy to ignite and burns completely in a t least 50 minutes.

The use of charcoal briquettes can reduce wood charcoal consumption of poultry farms, households and domestic enterprises which is about 590 t/year or an equivalent of 26,970 m3 fuelwood. Shifting to DENR charcoal not only puts forest wastes into good use but also helps mitigate carbon dioxide emission in the atmosphere and lessens the depletion of the country's forest resources.
