One of the main problems of Central Italy forest sector is the low economical valorization of wood products and in particular of fuel wood. According to this there is the need of products diversification. In order to reach this goal it is fundamental the implementation of scientific research, not only to find new possible innovative solutions, but also for the recovering of traditional products which nowadays are abandoned, obviously trying to improve them with new technologies. A feasible example is wood charcoal, which years ago was the main product of Central Italy forests but today is completely disappeared from forest chain. This assortment could be rediscovered in order to improve forest value chain. According to this a new model of mobile charcoal kiln was tested evaluating the characteristics of the process and of the product. The results of the analysis showed that the process of carbonization with the new mobile charcoal kiln is very efficient and productive. This process could be very advantageous for local community, differentiating economically marginal productions and qualifying new operators.
