I would be very interested in all ya'lls feedback. I am offgrid with 630 watts of solar, 12 battery bank and 6.5 hp horizontal mount gasoline ICE turning a 60-80 amp alternator whenever needed (hardly ever). We use propane for refrigeration and a propane generator to pump water from well to above ground tank and for washer. I have yet to make syngas and biochar but since this is a carbon neutral solution, what is wrong with modifying small internal combustion engines to run direct from this. I am intrigued as well by sterling engines and the like but... I think we can do with what is already to go and focus on accessibility and integration. This for the many- is really where we'll make a difference.
Let me know what you think of running ammonia absorption refer off syngas.. I'm pretty sure my chinese propane generator will run off this. Also any recs on biochar/syngas gasifiers for sale or homeade designs appreciated.. this company has this one http://gekgasifier.com/gasification-store/...
Please let me know what you think of this http://www.evingerinc.com/EG5-Gasifier-Kit-p/eg5k.htm Saves time but what are we paying for? Get gasifier/biochar maker built.. then I'll figure out how to fill my propane bottles with syngas add (vapor) gas injection to my TD truck and be good to go...
