Industrial Carbonization and Consultancy since 1850.

Carbon Engineering VMR has its roots in the Royal Dominion in the Netherlands where the family Beekman has experience in charcoal production stretching back as far as 1850. 
 
Out of this long experience, the two brothers Leen and Ger van Marion started 80th last century  developing a third generation system of charcoal manufacture: the VMR-systems: less smoke, no smell, less raw material, better labour circumstances, better and constant quality of  the charcoal and on top of that thé solution for the worldwide deforestation.
 
On several continents the VMR-system is realized.
