Group Description

This is an open source development group for small 'cottage' scale biomass, waste and coal gasification systems and synthetic fuels generation from these systems.

Synthetic fuels are generated chemically from the 'producer gas (Hydrogen and Carbon Monoxide)' generated by gasifiers. Such synthetic fuels include methane, methanol, ethanol, synthetic gasoline and synthetic diesel.

Gasification and synthetic fuel production systems have the potential to reduce or eliminate our reliance on petroleum. These systems also benefit local and developing economies from the usage of locally available sources of energy such as wood and forest residues, agricultural and crop wastes, grasses, and municipal solid waste, converting these into heat, electricity and even fuels such as methane, fuel alcohols, gasoline and diesel.

The 'open source' philosophy is used as a development method to get functional, low cost, small scale energy and fuel production systems in use and widely available worldwide.
