WEB SITE: http://www.silverfire.us/stoves

Larger units for combined water heating and cooking are available, including a boiler unit.
This unit is particularly interesting to me: http://www.silverfire.us/page_33_15/fire-dragon-multi-function-stove

I'm not sure this is the right forum to mention this video I just finished watching...which may not look as fancy as the Silver Fire unit ...but it seems like an amazing design that anyone can make the video: wood stove runs a generator, produces gasoline, runs a fridge and heats hot water at the same time url: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=arbXj9R6ZXw it would be interesting to hear anyone's comments about this design...I actually don't know much about they type of system...I had been listing to the podcast that Paul did with Erica and Ernie with the rocket mas heating system...and somehow came across this video...could the system in the video be combined with the rocket stove design?

Ah, MrTeslonian...

He has some pretty awesome videos making cool stuff from bits and bobs.

I really liked his series on fractional distillation from wood gas which that video is part of.

I was wondering if a similar setup could be incorporated into a rocket mass heater. You could make your liquid fuels, feed back the leftover gasses to the RMH, and have biochar as a by-product.

Interesting ideas...to expand on the designs so far...do you have the where with all to do an experiment to test it out? Unfortunately, I don't...and also don't know of any sources to do such experiments...at least so far as I know right now.
