Facts about Producer Gas Engines

G. Sridhar and Ravindra Babu Yarasu June, 2011

We are pleased to learn of this paper, in which Sridhar and Yarasu connect and engine that is designed to run on producer gas to a downdraft gasifier, and learn a lot of new things; one of which is that the engine runs efficiently at a higher compression ratio without any problems with knock. They do a great job of presenting the results from their trials, and then comparing standard modeling tools and finding where the gaps are. Well worth the read.

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.


Thermogenics 100kw Gasification System

Leland T. "Tom" Taylor, Thermogenics Inc, August, 2010

This is a 100kw gasification system which I have been working on and is fully operational. It is ideal for hospitals, pharmaceutical conversion, military battlefield waste conversion and the like. It is eminently portable and highly efficient.


Good, old Gasification meets High-Tech Fuel Cells

Hello everybody,

    I learned from Johannes about this forum. Just like Johannes, I did a PhD at Paul Scherrer Institut and the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology in Zurich in the field of Biomass Gasification. I wish I had known this forum back then because one of the goals of my thesis was to come up with a fixed bed gasifier in the 5 to 30 kWth scale which would operate at least one week non-stop. Fortunately, I did succeed in the end as you can read in my thesis.

      CU Burns 'Torrefied" Wood Instead of Pure Coal in Test

      KSMU Ozarks Public Radio, Friday, 14 August 2009

      City Utilities of Springfield invited local journalists out Thursday to witness an experiment in burning something other than coal to produce electricity. KSMU's Jennifer Moore took them up on the invitation and headed out.
