Handling and storage: These briquettes are available in 2 kg, 5 kg and 10 kg packaging. The ignition and handling process is similar to wood charcoal. These briquettes are packed in high quality packaging materials, therefore do not easily attacked by moisture. The shape of the charcoal is oval, therefore our briquettes are easy to handle and help in fuel saving. Once the bag is open, these briquettes must be stored in a dry place. Introduction to moisture may lead to breakdown, longer ignition time and reduction in durability. A window must kept open if burnt indoor.
