Willow Lump Charcoal

I am producing Willow Lump Charcoal by the closed retort method. I tried to make air float with a hammer mill but it all floated away in the breeze.

Along with salt peter (potassium nitrate) and sulfur, ground (Willow) charcoal is one of the ingredients in making Black Powder. Generally the proportions of the ingredients are 75% saltpeter, 15% Charcoal powder and 10% sulfur. Each component is ground separately before they are all mixed together to form black powder.
Black Powder has been used for fireworks for thousands of years.
In both firework making and gun powder manufacturing the charcoal provides lift and acts as a propellant. Willow charcoal is a particularly good propellant and lifting agent. These qualities arise from the fact that willow grows so quickly and is such a soft wood. It is the softest woods that provide the greatest lift.
