Wood Gasifier Builder's Bible: Turn Tree Branches into Biofuel in Minutes By Ben Peterson
Sheltering in? In times of war, natural disaster, pandemic & national emergency people have turned to a little known technology called wood gasification to transform sticks and branches from their own property into clean gaseous fuel.
The Wood Gasifier Builder's Bible is a step-by-step construction manual to build a powerful woodgas generator with advanced features, yet needing only a minimal build budget. Wood gasification extracts the stored sunlight in wood to create a gaseous biofuel rich in hydrogen. It's like having your own personal scale natural gas refinery. How would you like to make your own free fuel... for life? Cut your utility bills, alt fuel vehicles and farm equipment or just go way off-grid. It's all possible using locally available wood you can pick up off the ground and a little known technology that helped kick off the Industrial Revolution. Does it work? It powered 1 million installations in Europe during WW2 and saved the continent. Now, this new book builds on those traditional WW2 designs and improves them dramatically with automation and advanced heat recycling for better performance and stronger, cleaner gas. This book is for you if you are a: biofueler, solar panel owner, back to the lander, off-gridder, hydrocarbon hacker, hydrogen enthusiast, prepper, patriot, survivalist, permaculturalist, welder, engineer, fabricator, blacksmith, wood worker, alternative fuel researcher, WW2 buff, inventor, tinkerer, or just a curious minded problem solver. Finally a construction manual that spells it out step-by-step and divulges the secrets to the lost art of wood gasifier construction in easy to follow detail.
Run spark ignited engines, pump well water, heat greenhouses, filter water, kilns, forges and more. Stay safe at home. Secure self sufficient power for your off grid homestead or cabin.
Wood Gasifier Builder's Bible has 238 pages of 100's of photos, theory of operation: system layout, critical sizing charts & operation, and plans and instructions. It is writen by Ben Peterson, an award winning innovator who's work has been featured in Popular Mechanics, National Geographic, Mechanical Engineering and the Clean Tech Open to name a few. His area of focus is turning sunlight into fuels by combining modern solar technology and bio-refining processes to replace dirty petroleum and create a zero waste world.

Hi Angie - the short answer is that I have not finished the book yet! It's back in my reading list now. So far, it is a really comprehensive and very easy to read. It covers history, technical specs, materials etc. Ben is clearly very knowledgeable and makes you feel confident that you could use the book as the basis for trying out the technology without the need for other teaching materials.
Setting up a system like this falls into my "one day in the future if I have the right situation" file.
I reckon if you are curious about the book - go for it. I'd love to read your review in the future:)
