briquettes1

Since 1992, we produce barbecue briquettes made from Greek olive stones. An eco-innovative, European awarded product, the briquettes provides a sustainable source of energy which is 100% natural.

It is a Greek and European patented product certified from Greek Industrial Property Organisation and from European Patent Office(EPO).

For the production of our olive barbecue briquettes:

We don’t cut and burn trees or use remnants of chopping down trees to make charcoal. We use olive pits, a solid biomass which is a remnant from pomace factories produced during the process of collecting olive oil from Kalamata olive trees.
They don’t increase greenhouse gas emissions, as combustion of biomass is “carbon neutral”.

The key advantages during combustion are:

  • No smell
  • No smoke
  • Doesn’t spark
  • Easy to light up
  • Free of chemicals
  • Cook your food to perfection
  • High heating power of 6366 kcal/kg
  • Produced with methods friendly to the environment
  • Emits 30% less carbon monoxide than wood charcoal

It is a patented product, unique of its kind, which has enormous resonance in the world, and today you can find it in all Greece and abroad.

The product is distributing in the market packaged in bags of 3Kg, 10Kg and 15Kg.

Instructions for use and cooking

burningbriqWe don't use kindling to ignite our olive barbecue briquettes.

We create a pyramid of olive barbecue briquettes and at the center of the base we place a piece of cotton. We moistened it with alcohol and put fire on it using a lighter. The only flame and smoke that will appear is coming from the burning cotton.

Alternative way to ignite them is to insert a few Klimis briquettes into a Charcoal Chimney or use an Electronic Charcoal Starter.

The  olive barbecue briquettes will start to turn red, getting the grey color of ash and emit heat without showing fire and smoke as the classic wood charcoal and immediately we can cook if they all light up. To run the process of spreading the fire to all briquettes we can blow using for example a cardboard, a magazine, etc.

Klimis barbecue briquettes is uniformly in small shape. So, we don't need to break it. Simply spread on the surface that we want to have a fire to cook.

Finally, they don't need to be moved all the time. We just have to move some briquettes when we want to shift the intensity of fire in some places where we need to have more or less intensity of fire.
