Interested in alternative energy forever. Ruined my first engine on tarry gas in 1999. Tried a thousand (OK, a dozen) gasifier designs. Built bash valve steam engines… all in the pursuit of biomass to power.
Settled on charcoal gasification as most likely to succeed over time.
Working on solutions for the full chain; charcoal production and processing, simple and rugged gasifiers, slow speed engines, etc.
We have a small business building wood/charcoal forges (whitlox forge).
We live in the Sandy, Oregon area and have a super abundance of wood.
