Since 2007, after the election victory of the Palestinian Hamas movement in the Gaza Strip, Israel imposed an all-encompassing economic embargo on the territory. Restrictions concerned the supply of fuel, electricity, food. To survive in such difficult conditions in the Gaza Strip have been taken a number of measures. Great attention is paid to the collection of recyclable materials and its processing. For example, wood waste, wood pieces processed in a coal-fired housing and on which food is prepared.

In the neighborhood east of Gaza City, there are several "factories" that produce charcoal artisanal. The neighborhood east of Gaza City, Gaza Strip, March 2, 2013.
