Some basics: http://opensourceecology.org/wiki/Pyrolysis_Oil
I have designed many pyro installations in my old day’s … even from rubber waste from recycled tyres…
Making it from wood is easy…
I will make some sketching from a simple “divider” to separate the heavy from the light tars, during the charcoaling process.
Actualy i am building one charcoal set + prototype 50 Kwh generator set for the largest Rice Noodle producer from Thailand.
He wants to support our work.
The biggest challenge he has for me is an old Cat 12 Cyl diesel to modify… ( 1 Megawatt set )
( using the charcoal gasifier to clean up his sewer biogas at the same time )
He’s sponsoring now old stuff from his factory to do experiments ( engines, stainless … )
Lot of fun on the way…
