Bioenergy Co-generation: Heat, Hot Water, Gas & Liquid Biofuel
Like burning wood, making biochar releases huge amounts of energy as process heat, flammable gases and volatile liquids. These by-products can be captured and harnessed to deliver useful energy for everything from cooking food to space heating to powering engines & vehicles to electric power generation. There is tremendous potential to use these energy products as substitutes for fossil fuels, in homes, on farms and as community power.
Terra Char will explore and develop technology and equipment to tap these energies and make use of them in practical, sustainable ways.
Al Denninger's 5-gallon gasifier
Biostove & Bioenergy Training Camp June 3-6, Woodpecker Farm, Thornfield, MO led by Doug Brethower For 5 days, enthusiastic students learned biomass gasification to build biomass-to-energy devices, from tin can ministoves to 30-gallon KeyStove GH greenhouse heaters. High point was connecting Al Denninger's 5-gallon gasifier to a 5kw electric generator. More bioenergy trainings are planned in the future.
