This topic is about plasma gasification of charcoal only
to honor the work and research of Marco Cioni who paved the road with his innovative thinking in this field.
Can it be done ? yes
Can you build a plasma gasifier ? yes
is it viable ? who knows…
is it fun ? yes
Thinking about plasma gives a headache ? yes, definitively
Is it hot ? yes, very hot
can it be used in a car/motorcycle ? yes.
to gasify charcoal you’ll need 2 main “things”
so, simple experiment: use a plasma torch in an bucket filled with charcoal and extract the gas…
actually, i am building something like that… (no joke) only waiting for the plasma torch promised to me
if i survive the first trials, i will keep posting my progress here…
all other idea’s to generate plasma heat are welcome.
just remember… heat by plasma and charcoal is the topic.
we want to find out about the energy balance, input vs output, so please check your numbers…
