About Us - GEK Gasifier

ALL Power Labs is the new global leader in small-scale gasification. We make biomass fueled power generators that are ready for everyday work, to serve real world distributed energy needs. Our project started in 2008 with the open source Gasifier Experimenter’s Kit (the GEK), supporting research, education and DIY hacking in biomass thermal conversion. Five years later the GEK has evolved into the Power Pallet, a full solution for personal scale biomass power generation. Today you can find over 500 of our systems in over 50 countries, and supporting research in over 50 universities. Our motivating goal is to deploy at scale a new type of energy product: a personal scale waste-to-energy appliance.

TROMPE - Powered Passive Aeration of Mine Water Thursday December 12, 2013 (Revision of video posted Tuesday, June 18, 2013) PITTSBURGH, PA — In the 1600s, Italian engineers discovered a way to compress air using only gravity and water. Later on, Spanish engineers working on ways to improve iron production, realized this technique could be used to drive their tools. In the 20th century, modern engineers realized the advantages of using the same device to drive tools used in underground mining while also supplying fresh air to miners. Product Overview - GEK Gasifier ALL Power Labs offers biomass gasifiers and power generation systems at multiple levels of assembly and system integration. From ”You build it from scratch” to “We deliver it turnkey complete“; you decide the relative amount of effort vs cost you want to invest towards your finished system. All GEKs and Power Pallets are covered by a 100% money back guarantee. If you buy one and find yourself unimpressed with the total value of the product and project, we’ll refund all your money (minus shipping costs)– we’re that confident you’ll be happy with the specifics. See here for more specifics on our warranty. We offer complete customer support and service, with a dedicated team available to answer your questions, trouble shoot your installation, even travel to your site for setup and training.

Have you welded and painted and properly assembled the GEK Gasifier? Have you fired up the flare and adjusted the results until you get a clean gas? If so, you've graduated to the next level: run an engine with the GEK to start making power. Below are the instructions and suggestions you will need to get started.

Plastic Gasification = diesel for $.17 a Liter Originally Posted by Rusty ShackelfordHitler powered the Third Reich with gasification for the most part. I have been curious about the process for some time as gasification can take place with any carbon based feed stock. I don't envision it making us energy independent on its own, but do see it as a key component. I am intrigued by the possibility of using landfill refuse and sewage sludge as a possible cheap feedstock. Using our trash and waste for fuel instead of using our food as fuel makes much more sense.I work in landfills and the off gassing can power some of them. However, the retrofitting technology for older LFs is not there yet to scale it up. Build A Gasifier - Gasifier-Kits Is building a gasifier too difficult? Well you could just buy a kit or a small scale designed unit. The links here explore a range of options.

While personal scale gasification has long held tremendous promise, the realities of making it work usually prove too much for regular mortals. The high bar of operator expertise and extreme sensitivity to fuel particulars, usually combine to make what seems simple in principle, exceedingly difficult in practice. The Power Pallet has significantly widened this window for success by embedding the needed “expertise” in an onboard electronic brain.

Announcing the New v.5 GEK Gasifier & Power Pallet - GEK Gasifier Now with 24hr run time, increased reliability and ease of use Today we’re pleased to announce the new v5.0 GEK Gasifier and related Power Pallet. Two years in development, the v5.0 represents a generational change in our core gasifier technology, incorporating all we’ve learned over the last five years of development and deployment. For you, this means a significant advancement in performance, ease of use, and cost of operation/maintenance. Wood gas Wood gas is a syngas fuel which can be used as a fuel for furnaces, stoves and vehicles in place of gasoline, 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.

5 DIY Earth-Friendly Cooking Devices Capturing HEAT Five Earth-Friendly Cooking Technologies and How to Build Them By Dean Still and Jim Kness Jean Pain Compost Heating | Ingienous Designs - Iceweasel Jean Pain was an ingenious French inventor who composted woody biomass on his farm to make fertile soil while collecting large amounts of emission-free energy. The Jean Pain Mound is a large pile of chipped forest wood brush (up to 40 tons) with a bioreactor in the middle and plastic piping spiraling through the pile to absorb the heat of decomposing wood mass. It produces: methaneheat for hot watercompost from wood chips
