Nothing wrong with what you have said KristijanL.
A fact check proof:
internet search up, “wood charcoal making machines”.
You will have pages and pages; and pictures and pictures of largish scale charcoal making systems.
Some using woods and wood products as an input stock. Others using Agriculture and Urban portions as their carbons inputs.
Some of the woods inputs systems making actual wood chunks charcoals. Most making carbons “fines” to then be slurry pressed/extruded and dried into fuel pellets, briquets, and rods.
ALL of these systems using all of the base off gasses as a heating fuel for their systems.
I will argue the use of the word, “necessity” though.
The original internal combustion engines were developed to fuel with powdered fossil coal dusts; biological made alcohols; plant made and animal made oils&fats.
Hard to use-meter and store two of the four of these.
Three out of the four of these could be DIY/farmer made virtually most anywhere. A No! NO!
So the “necessity” was driven to engines, and engine use develop to only be able to use a multi-tier level financed-developing; financed manufactured; and financed systems distributed Users-fuel. Money making more money.
To encourage more use: make it easy user, to use. Make it super cheap. Make it widely available.
Hey!! Just like easy-use Internet’ing versus telephone exchanging; or good-god-no, actual letters writing exchanging.
Pretty simple actually IMHO. Woodgas from your own grown stocks IS THE DO-IT-YOURSELF freedom fuel. Sweat it out. And it will provide.
Wood Charcoal? Can be too. A few make, and use it as such.
But then advanced engineered, better performance fuel charcoals? With guaranteed engine use performance specifications? Available as traveling roadside available fuel? Nope. Be just another highly taxed, highly regulated keep them-enslaved fuel-use chain.
And as living in the USofA. If I could shave 10-15 years off of myself I’d be developing a portable charcoal engine fueling system that could use commercial bagged “who knows what” cheapest BBQ briquets. Able to handle the super high ash residues of that commercial made-cheapest stuff.
Quite the challenge.
Then on excellent DIY wood-charcoal some make here that system would probably zoom-zoom, perform easy.
The 1940’s Swedish Kahlle systems required specially graded and screened for-Kahlle’s fuel charcoal to be able to zoom-zoom.
I accept this super duper special-specification fuel required in my super light man packed chain saws. I accept this in nothing else I use and own.
I burn most anything emissions safe in my in-house bulk woodstove. Be burning for house heating a lot of obsolete held back from landfills books this winter. The 3 cents a pound previous bulk buyer of these had gone defunct.
Ashy. Ashy. Ashy. Stir&clean. Stir&clean. Ashes to the landfill. Too many unknown metallic’s and such in their glossy covers and inks.
USofA newsprint with soy inks is OK. Brown paper sacks and packing non-glossy corrugated cardboard is OK. Everything else is too suspect to go into my chickens. Into my soils…
