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.
