Can anybody point me in the right direction as to where I can find any 
information on large scale charcoal production. A guy i met last night has 
timber interests in Papua Nuguini and says about 30% of the trees logged are 
not taken by the buyers. I asked him if they should just not cut these logs 
but he said they can't tell if the logs will be taken until the buyers turn 
up. He would like to make charcol from these logs, I assume to sell as fuel to 
the people around the areas being logged. Any info would be appreciated.
