Manning Gasifier Webpage
Greg Manning, November 2006
As promised, I have finally found some time to update my website.
Hold on, this is just a start, I have a year of tests, thoughts, evaluations, and flops, this is only the tip of the iceberg.
Our normal "seasonal layoff" has not happened this winter, as we moved right into snow removal, from heavy construction, not normal for us, SO, please be forgiving, if the updates are slow, but I will do them as I can....
The above equation tells us that with steam and hot or molten iron we can make H2 with rust being the byproduct. This rust can be converted back to iron. Check out the below links for more information.
This article explains the various methods that I have used to make paper fireballs. The most practical method is what I call the "rock & roll" method. The end product can be seen in the above picture 17.

Gasifier and Engine Tables
Kevin Chisholm, October 11, 2006
Attached is a Spread Sheet "Gasifier and Engine Tables" that should answer a number of questions relating to diesel fuel displaced by using wood gas in a dual fueled engine, or the amount of wood required to provide sufficient gas to run a Spark Ignition (SI) engine of any size.
Hydrothermal Carbonization, Markus Antonietti, Max Planck Institute, of Colloids and Interfaces,
has developed a method of making coal from biomass using an autoclave system. The process is suitable for web biomass and the main byproduct is water, not carbon dioxide. It seems suitable for wet biomass that is difficult to combust. The process is being studied extensively in Germany.
