I decided to launch this blog to accommodate my new website “miniwoodgas.com” in the hopes of motivating others who have built working gasifiers to share their data with others who may be wanting to try this for themselves. Thanks, Flash001USA

    Hi Everyone,
    So I’ve been buried with work and spring tasks at my lot so I had shelved starting my gassifier until the fall.
    Completely unrelated to woodgas I was looking into a still for making …. water. I stumbled across an article about distilling methanol from wood. Where I am distilling fuel is legal.
    I started thinking about switching my power focus from a gassifier to a methanol plant. Then instead of having to startup the gassifier every day to charge my batteries I could run the methanol plant periodcaly (monthly maybe) and build up a reserve to run the generator. Then the generator could even be started automatically when needed even when I am not there, something that is not possible with a gassifier.

    Another added benefit is for methanol production the smaller the wood pieces the better so running on wood chips is ideal. This means wood production should be easier given my potential fuel source (logging slash piles)

    Has anyone else looked into creating methanol for running their generator on? Would love some feedback even if its that you think I’m crazy.
    Thanks
