I have mentioned on a couple of occasions that my intention is to provide some of our home’s electricity using wood gasification.
Wood gasification is a process that enables you to run an internal combustion engine by burning wood, and we have tonnes of scrap wood. We also plan to capture the waste heat from the gasifier to heat the house. It is an interesting technology, and you can learn about it here or here.
One of the sites I follow announced a give-away of gasifier parts. It is really simple! To quote the site … ‘I’ve got an assortment of about $800 worth of laser cut parts and a rolled 16 ga. cylinder in mild steel that I am giving away for my birthday. THE BIG 32! Whomever writes the
most commented blog or forum post will win these beauties.’
I’ve written the blog post (http://victorygasworks.ning.com/profiles/blogs/earthships-and-wood) … now I need comments. Haven’t you ALWAYS wanted to build a gasifier!
I almost forgot. Happy Birthday Ben!
Hey … what are you waiting for?
