Summertime is barbecue time: in no country in the EU is more charcoal consumed than in Germany. But summer fun has its downsides. The fact that this hides a billion-dollar business that destroys primeval forests and funds terror, among other things, is something most consumers are unaware of. The investigative report “The dirty business with the charcoal” follows the coal from our grill back to its origin in Africa and Eastern Europe. Experts from Interpol, Earthsight, The Forest Trust and the WWF make it clear: Coal trade routes are intricate, and it is not unusual for mafia structures to hide behind the producers. Corruption and criminal networks are an integral part of black gold trade.
