About KGC – Khmer Green Charcoal

KGC is an award-winning social enterprise registered in Cambodia, which produces environmental friendly char-briquettes.

Through innovative technologies, KGC is able to transform biomass waste, like coconut shells, in high-quality green char briquettes. Compared to the traditional charcoal KGC’s char-briquettes burn longer and make less smoke and sparks, thus resulting in a better, healthier and safer product.

By selling its green char-briquettes on the local market, KGC reduces the demand for traditional charcoal and consequently contributes to a reduction of deforestation and thus of CO2 emissions.


  • Premium char-briquettes – burning time 2-3 hours
  • Diamond char-briquettes – burning time over 5 hours
  • BBQ fire starters
