Authentic Japanese Binchotan charcoal (1 to 2 litres)


Discover the authentic Japanese zero waste charcoal
In the south of Japan there is a tree with wood so dense that it is impossible for it to float. It is the Ubamegashi, a typical oak tree of the land of the rising sun. Since the 17th century, its fine branches have been burned to obtain pieces of activated charcoal. They are mainly used to purify drinking water.

Chamarrel, specialist in zero waste products, offers you to discover these Japanese charcoal sticks as an alternative to plastic water bottles. Discover our Binchotan sticks specifically designed for containers between 1 and 2 litres.


Why choose Binchotan charcoal?
It's an environmentally friendly and economical way to get rid of bottled water. It is also an excellent and affordable way to have filtered drinking water at home or for every outing.

Binchotan carbon has been used for many years in Japan. It is a natural water filtering process that is completely safe for the body. The resulting water is ideal for everyone, even for preparing baby's bottles.


How do you filter water with Binchotan carbon?
To use it, nothing could be simpler: wash your hands, then pass and brush the stick under cold water. Boil your charcoal in water for 12 to 15 minutes to activate it and take it out to dry. Ideally you should use the sun's rays depending on the season or leave it in the open air.

Once dry, it is ready to use. You should then fill your jug, pitcher or glass bottle and insert your Binchotan stick into it. You should wait at least 8 hours before drinking the water. We advise you to purify it at night and repeat the cycle during the day. This way, you will have pure water to drink at will.

The way it works is simple: charged with positive ions, it will capture the negative ions of the substances present in the water and trap them in its alveoli. The water will then be purer and more pleasant to the taste and smell. Binchotan filter carbon will remove heavy metals, pesticide residues, medicines and sulphur, as well as limescale and chlorine.


Do's and don'ts
Never leave the charcoal in the same water for more than 48 hours and never use it with non-drinking water.

Japanese charcoal can be used continuously. If this is not the case, let it dry before your next use and store it in an airtight container.


Your questions about the Binchotan
Can I use my charcoal in any container?
The Japanese charcoal pieces we offer are generally no more than 3.5 cm in diameter. This means that they can fit into a one or one and a half litre flask, a bottle of the same capacity or a pitcher. However, they will have difficulty fitting into a narrow-necked bottle.


How big are the activated carbon sticks?
At Chamarrrel, we offer Binchotan charcoal sticks of about 15 to 20 cm in length and about 3.5 cm in diameter. However, being natural and untreated products, each piece is unique and can therefore vary significantly. We fully accept this detail.


Is it a real natural and ecological water filter?
Most, if not all, water filters contain activated carbon, often in loose or recomposed powder form. Here we offer you the natural form of carbon, in the form of an imperfect stick.

After studies conducted on water purified by the Binchotan, here are the results obtained:

Some limestone remains in the water, which is a good thing as it provides the necessary dose of calcium to the body
The magnesium content remains the same
The potassium content increases, which is good for deficiencies
The hardness of the water is reduced, which makes it less "heavy" to drink
The water becomes a little more alkaline, which counteracts the acidic tendency of today's organisms
Chlorine is eliminated
The level of copper increases, which promotes the formation of red blood cells and the immune system
The water is enriched with zinc, which contributes to the correct condition of the skin and hair
For heavy metals, lead and aluminium are considerably reduced

In other words, in general, Binchotan charcoal works perfectly as a natural water filter.

Original Japanese product:

Our Binchotan charcoal comes directly from Japan, from the prefecture of Wakayama, the birthplace of Binchotan.

It is made using the ancient method, in a traditional handmade kiln, with branches of Japanese Ubamegashi (holm oak) whose high density is essential for the quality of traditional Binchotan.



Controlled product:

Our Japanese craftsman is renowned for his expertise. He also has the authorizations to export his binchotan. These authorizations are provided by the Wakayama prefecture and are materialized by the yellow sticker which seals each shipment. This ensures the origin and reliability of the binchotan.

Once the Binchotan has arrived in France, at our request, it is tested by the CRIIRAD, a French association approved under the law of 1901 for the protection of the environment, which conducts studies and analyses in the field of radioactivity. These tests are renewed regularly.



Active support for the craft industry:

We have taken the decision to support handicraft production all the way to Japan.

Our activity supports a family that perpetuates the ancestral know-how that is the manufacture of the real Japanese Binchotan.

This is why Binchotan sticks are not regular but we assume this originality.



Product range:

We offer binchotan in sizes S, M and L (like the clothes) or in bulk by 100g (more economical but not "calibrated").

The "calibrated" sticks are all less than 3.5 cm (or even 3 cm) in diameter and are divided according to their weight (20% tolerance):

 - Flask 0.5 - 1 L: 20 g

 - Carafe 1 L: 25 g

 - Jug 1 - 2 L: 35 g

 - Fountain 2 - 3 L: 50 g

 - Carafe 3 - 5 L: 90 g


Use :

The dosage should be adapted to the quality of your water and your palate.

The Carafe stick is sufficient for a 1 litre carafe. Depending on the quality of your water, it may be necessary to switch to a Pitcher stick or even to add 2 Gourd sticks.


This stick can only be used on water that is already drinkable.

It should be handled with clean hands.


1) Put the stick under water and scrub it with a brush or loofah.

2) Plunge it into boiling water for about ten minutes

3) Take it out and let it dry in the open air

4) Once it is dry, place it in your carafe/bottle/flask (ideally in glass or stainless steel) and fill it with DRINKING water

5) Wait (ideally 8 hours or overnight). 

6) Your water is ready to be enjoyed.


Precautions :

- Always handle the Binchotan with clean hands.

- Do not leave the Binchotan in the same water for more than 48 hours.

- If it is not used continuously, be sure to let it dry and then store it in an airtight container. It should then be brushed, sterilised (10 minutes in boiling water) and left to dry before being used again.

- Brush, sterilise (10 minutes in boiling water) and dry the Binchotan at least once a month (our craftsman recommends weekly).


Depending on how often you use it, the Binchotan is effective for +/- 4 months with average continuous use.

After that it can be crushed and used in the soil to enrich it, dried and used as an odour absorber (air, refrigerator) for example.
