Has anyone here charcoaled wood chips

I have found an unending supply of wood chips and have materials onsite to build a one ton charcoal retort that could be fired with chips.


The guy I know who has done this was doing this for biochar, not wood gas ->

But small production compared to what you are looking for.

Thanks Mart, I had not thought to look under biochar. That is a pretty simple way for a fair amount of production. I had been concerned that most of the smaller pieces would be totally consumed but it looked great.

All power labs have a heap of info about making biochar.

Thanks Gary, I’ll check them out!
