Charcoal manufactured in Cuba maintains its presence in markets in the European Union because it has excellent quality. Portugal, Italy and Spain are the main countries importing the energetic material that is made by artisans in various agricultural and forestry companies on the island.
So far this year the province of Ciego de Avila sent to Europe about 22 thousand tons of coal which places it among the first in the nation in export this product.
Coal is obtained from marabou in provinces of Granma, Las Tunas, Camagüey, Sancti Spiritus and Ciego de Avila and overhangs provide a blue flame, without smoke or ash.
The production of charcoal is an alternative for energy sources without affecting the environment, in addition to using the marabou, abundant undesirable plant in the Cuban countryside.
