In this work, effects of storage time and conditions on the properties of one woody charcoal were studied. Analyses results showed that the volatile matter content of the charcoal samples collected from the bottom section of containers changed significantly more than those collected from the top section. Compared to small size charcoal samples, a higher increase in volatile matter content was detected in large size charcoal samples, and increasing with increasing storage time. The fixed carbon content of all charcoal samples changed along the storage time. Results from this work suggest that long storage/transportation time at unfavorable conditions should be avoided, in order to maintain the as loaded charcoal properties during long-term transport and storage.
