Doug Brethower Author of Make Smoke, Burn Smoke - Biomass Gasification Primer


Psst.. want to get in on the ground floor of an opportunity that has a potential value of 3 billion barrels of oil per year?* Real power for real people. At $4 per gallon gasoline, waste wood is worth $750 per cord in energy equivalent. What is wrong with this picture? Rural areas are wealthy, most don't know it yet. Burning the smoke extracts more energy from wood, while reducing emissions and creating a value-added product, biochar. In the book are proven designs that make best use of natures original "fuel cells". Roll up your sleeves. Six designs are explored in enough detail to allow handy types to build something similar on their own.

Burning smoke is NOT rocket science. Yet the efficiency must be experienced to be believed. Like riding a bicycle, "woodgas" is simple once you understand it, but understanding it requires experience. "Make Smoke Burn Smoke" starts simple and stays simple. Engineering terminology and formulas are purposefully omitted. Eleven real world examples of what others have already done, give an idea of the possibilities going forward. Small scale local energy works! Get a copy of "Make Smoke, Burn Smoke" today, and join in the conversation! *DOE estimate, 1983. "the potential contribution of biomass to U.S. energy demand could range as high as 17 quadrillion Btu per year--almost 20% of current U.S. energy consumption."
