Governer Bella Angara-Catillo, Mayor Tubigan and the Dinalugan Municipal Council are proud to cut the ribbon on the first gasifier for rural power electrification in the Philippines this month.
The 250kw Gasifier is welcomed by the community of Dinalungan, Aurora as an alternative to expensive diesel power in the area. Diesel power in the local communities are struggling to provide power for more than 6 hours per day.

From Doug Cure of Alternative Energy Solutions International, October, 2011
As the United States biomass thermal and power industry continues to expand, new reliable technologies offering higher efficiency solutions must be introduced. The newly introduced EOS series biomass gasification boiler is among the most energy efficient of AESI’s high-performance, low-maintenance biomass energy plants. The EOS series provides thermal outputs ranging from 600,000 BTU/hr to 20 million BTU/hr, and can be staged to provide increased capacity.

Meva Innovation AB has been working on a new VIPP (Vortex Intensive Power Process) cyclone gasifier and gas cleaner. They have had a 500kw CHP Pilot plant operating since 2009, and are building a small CHP plant for a district heating (utility) which will be commissioned in September.
Your comments on the charcoal issue is right. This information is for the people who would be interested in charcoal making.
Not properly dried wood will never yield more than 20% charcoal and most of the pieces will be broken. Charcoal which is not broken in pieces, burn longer and gives more energy. In the market what is called Grade A charcoal, brings 30 to 40% more price than lump charcoal. What is most important today is try to make charcoal as clean as possible environmentally, even in traditional kilns.

1. What is the current population of your operating gasifiers?
From the 17 (including Gustaf’s) sold at about one / year, 7 of the later ones are still in operation, but this will hopefully change drastically once my comments in 7. (below) materialize.
