Natural Additives

The charcoaling process in the retort guarantees an exceptionally high carbon content in the charcoal produced, and at the same time, acids and aromas are captured (extracted) from the untreated beechwood and further processed (distilled) on site.

Foods such as meat and fish can be exquisitely flavoured with the unique proFagus smoke aromas.

90% of the heat energy used for the manufacturing of charcoal and fluids is generated from by-products.

First-class German manufacturing standards mean that there is no waste and all by-products are processed for further use. Unlike with the old kiln and burner method, the charcoal is free of harmful substances, and the safe manufacturing processes used mean that there is no damage to the environment. This is all thanks to the state-of-the-art manufacturing procedures of proFagus.


From time immemorial, mankind has used hardwoods for smoking, in order to refine meats or fish and to enable them to be kept longer. Nowadays, when millions of people wish to enjoy the taste of smoked products, the sole use of smoke would make production more expensive and cause damage to the environment. This is where industrial smoke aromas come into play. They have all the advantages of smoke without the unwanted side-effects.

The high-quality charcoal finds a broad field of application, particularly in industry. A classic use is, for example, as coal for reduction and covering in the melting of metals, such as copper, silicon, zinc, etc.

Acetic acids of highly pure quality can be used in a variety of ways, e.g. as an etchant chemical for the production of chips. For the manufacturing process, the gases that occur during charcoaling are condensed and purified in a multi-stage purifying process, in order to obtain a highly pure acetic acid.
