History of cashews


Cashew originated from Brazil, the South American tropics and cashew gradually dispersed to Africa, Asia, Australia. Today cashew has strewn in the boundary latitude 300 North and latitude 30.


Cashew can be grown in harsh and diverse climatic conditions. High heat-loving plant is sensitive to cold, tropical climate with a marked dry season is the perfect conditions to thrive tree.


According to FAO, nowadays, in the world, cashew is considered as a commercial product in 32 countries but there are only 10 tropical and subtropical countries where cashew trees grow well in the world today including: India, Vietnam , Brazil, Nigenia, Tanzania, Indonesia, Guinea Bissau, Cotolvore, Monzambique.


However,  cashews are grown in popularity in southern Viet Nam, which  is the most famous place in the world for the great reputation of the cashew. It has been grown as an official special crop and plays an significant role in the agricultural sector in some tropical and subtropical countries



By-products and waste:


Because of polluting the environment, cashew nut shell is previously almost-burned or thrown away. It has now become a source of material for the petrochemical industry .

The process of exporting cashew generates a large amount of waste. Most manufacturers have burned this kind of waste, causing environmental pollution. In fact, for every kilogram of cashew nuts after human dissection, the shells make up 60%. With the output of the second largest cashew industry in Vietnam today, the volume of cashew nut shell discharging after processing is extremely high. Previously, the amount of waste has to be burned or pressed into blocks that can be used as furnace relating to environmental contamination. But handling nut shell is not as simple as people expect due to complex technology and massive investments. This is the reason why only a few businesses could primarily perform combustion but most of them chose destruction.


The process of refining oil from cashew nut shell after purchased will go through the machine to get crude oil, residue of cashew nut shell will be molded into blocks to sell to brick kiln furnace used as fuel. And crude oil after pressing will be processed through the filter to remove sediment. Then it will be put into the reactors to split water, the rest is refined oil which will be put into the furnace heat  to raise the temperature of the oil with vacuum distillation tower to produce oil cardanol. When distilled, refined oil at high temperature will change the gaseous and condensed into liquid at the bottom of the tower and then drain the tank. Cardanol oil residue in the distillation process is the production of the friction. Coal production process, activated carbon, shell after being dried and burned by the heat transfer system will form coal. Coal will be put into smokeless charcoal oven and get heat at temperature of 850oC to produce activated carbon …
