Dissemination information relating to the alternatives utilization of wood-waste to the broader audiences, particularly the local communities, was the main concern to making this manual book. It is expected that as output of dissemination of this books, local peoples will be enriched with more information regarding the utilization of waste for charcoal making, and will bring impact on each of their own community and livelihood.
