Wood gas is a syngas fuel which can be used as a fuel for furnaces, stoves and vehicles in place of petrol , diesel or other fuels. During the production process biomass or other carbon-containing materials are gasified within the oxygen-limited environment of a wood gas generator to produce hydrogen and carbon monoxide . These gases can then be burnt as a fuel within an oxygen rich environment to produce carbon dioxide , water and heat. In some gasifiers this process is preceded by pyrolysis , where the biomass or coal is first converted to char , releasing methane and tar rich in polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons . [ edit ] History
