Until two decades ago, roundwood or pile wood was the primary raw material for charcoal. Because of the competition by other industries, particle board and fibre board manufacturing wood prices became unaffordable for the charcoal industry in European countries and the U.S.A. Thus the charcoal-maker turned to other sources like slabs and off-cuts of lumberyards and timber sawmilling, bark and sawdust.
