The Science

The Science Behind Wood GasDo you rely on a generator in times of emergency when there is no power? Your generator relies on gasoline. What do you do when the gas supply runs out? With our Low Emission Alternative Fuel Generator (The L.E.A.F.) you can convert readily available biomass materials, (wood, branches, debris) into much needed electricity and heat!

Gasification is a process that converts biomass materials into carbon monoxidehydrogen and methane. This is achieved by reacting the material at high temperatures without combustion, with a controlled amount of oxygen. The resulting gas mixture is called syngas (from synthesis gas or synthetic gas) or wood gas and is a clean burning fuel.

The power derived from gasification and combustion of the resulting gas is considered to be a source of renewable energy because  the gasified compounds are obtained from biomass. A standard gasoline generator can be powered indefinitely with readily available prepared biomass.

Prepared dry biomass material (wood blocks, chips, debris, branches) is placed into the reactor and ignited. After separation and filtration of the smoke, a clean burning, clear gas vapor is emitted that will power standard gasoline generator or other types of internal combustion engine indefinitely!
