I no longer chop. The bale fits into the gasifier/charcoalfier and
becomes charcoal.

This charcoal looks just like the original biomass just black and maybe
smaller. In other words its still intact.

Since this material doesn't become damaged and the goal is to produce
carbon agglomeration (fireballs) to replace coal I have to do some
reduction but this material is vary fragile so it will not consume much
energy.
