This sounds like an interesting topic but I have to say I am a bit confused too...

Why doesn't the heating fire produce the light directly?

Hey Rossco,
I have to admit that im still a bit confused about this as well, best I can describe is you heat the wood in an semi enclosed envionment, Heating the wood causes an action called pyrolisis which releases the flammable gases from the wood, charring the wood but not actually burning it, the gases are the pulled out and burned or used to run an engine,furnace, etc... go to youtube and do a search for wood gas and you can actually see video's of people running cars on wood gas or syngas.
Cheers
Mark

P.S. During the fuel shortages of WWII many people converted their cars to run on wood gas or coal gas.....

Thanks for clarifying Mark ...

I checked some buy burning around on a wood gas powered lawn tractor on youtube.

Interesting experiment but I don't think I'll be converting my Suzuki swift to wood gas any time soon!!!

I missed this the first time, Mark. Delicious is a social bookmarking site. The idea is that you can see other people's bookmarks. Check it out: Delicious.

If you add me to your network (I don't have to approve it since I can control what I do and don't want available to others) you can search my bookmarks in Delicious - they are organized by tags instead of files. For example, if you look in my tags under BrickOvens you'll find all the links I've bookmarked on things related to brick ovens (and some masonry - I need to reorganize some stuff. ). Try 'Energy' for my stuff on alternative energy sources. I have quite a few (those who don't have their own yards research! )

A gas brick oven using wood gas... Irony, no?


I know that's not your plan, but it would be funny...


It's morning and I have to go to work - so my sense of humor is on the fritz...


Still funny...
