Wood Gas Generator

Aim :
     A wood gas generator is a gasification unit which converts timber or charcoal into wood gas, a syngas consisting of carbon monoxide, hydrogen, traces of methane, and other gases, which - after cooling and filtering - can then be used to power an internal combustion engine or for other purposes . Historically wood gas generators were often mounted on vehicles, but present studies and developments concentrate mostly on stationary plants
