Hi Don,
I don’t know, yet…
Hope to find out soon…

@Pelletpower
This one between 200 and 300 m3 gas
For boiler testing and next generators.
And yes, this size is able for comunity powersuply

The cooler thing is to recover heat as max for preheating production air.

Next, after this test, is upscaling to 14 megawatt boiler fuel

That will be a lot of bamboo to keep it going. Does bamboo dry quicky after being cut up and put under a dry shelter?
Very nice heavy duty build Koen.

Hi Bob,
Yeah, a big heap bamboo needed… about 25.000 Ton/Year
Now we are using sawdust and woodshavings a bit messy and not efficient.

Bamboo after fresh cut (70% moist) goes fairly quick to -15% in about 4 weeks ( good climate here for that )

Heavy duty… yeah, but i will try to melt it :grin:

Hi Bob…
1760 = only 960 celcius…
i consider 2500 / 1370 as melting temperature :grin:
i remember when i tried hydrogen/plasma to gasify… rip the poor test rig…
