Home Gasifiers On Sale Now: Don't Fear Peak Oil

Imagine not having to pay the power company for electricity, and not having to buy gasoline to drive your vehicles. Imagine getting all the heat, hot water, electric power, and vehicular fuel you need from waste wood and other biomass on your property.

A home-scale gasifier for producing clean, combustible gas from biomass, is now available for purchase at Woody Gasifier. Such a gasifier can be used to fuel an electric generator, or even to fuel an automobile.

Videos and workshops to get you up to speed on adapting these gasifiers to your needs, can be obtained at the Victory Gasworks website. In order to get the best use from your home gasifier, you will need to acquire both knowledge and practical expertise.

This PDF from the Oregon Biomass Energy Home Page will provide you with some basic principles that may help you make a more informed decision on whether gasification is appropriate for your energy situation.

Will this work on wood? We have a lot of long pole in Wyoming that's dead from pine beetles.

You betcha. That's what it's designed for, but it can use any dried carbon source as long as you take the time to tune the gasifier for the particular fuel.
