Chabon (Creole for charcoal) Project is coming along. The top part is a working surface that is slightly angled so the run off water goes back into the lower tanks. The bottom hole will contain two tanks or wet areas that will allow us to turn paper, cardboard, wood chips... into mulch. The mulch is then squeezed so most of the water returns to the tanks. It will then be placed in forms and we'll use hydraulic jacks to remove the rest of the water. The raw material now has to spend a day or two in the sun and-- VOILA -- chabon.
