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. Dr TLUD - Gasifier cook stove A comprehensive examination of TLUD technology will necessarily involve four essential realms or areas of focus: Fuels Combustion Devices Applications of Heat Human Factors Every successful cookstove project must address four essential components: fuels as the source of energy for producing heat, combustion devices (devices to release the energy of fuels as heat and light) to obtain heat, applications of produced heat (i.e., the purposeful capture of heat energy, as in a cooking pot), and human factors such as costs, cooking preferences/traditions, cultural considerations, and user-friendliness. Failure in any of these four components will lead to failure in the project. Many cookstove projects are differentiated primarily by applications and human factors.

GEK Wiki / Run an Engine with the GEK return to How to Build and Run the GEK Gasifier How to do wood gas conversions for gasoline, diesel, and propane/natural gas engines with the GEK Gasifier. 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. Energypedia - GIZ HERA Cooking Energy Compendium Log in / create account About Help 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.

Good, healthy bacteria grow within a balanced fish pond in order to help break down fish waste. 10-20kw Power Pallets - GEK Gasifier Why it’s different The Power Pallet is the culmination of our long-standing project to create an expertly engineered, small-scale gasification solution that is realistic for today’s user. 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.

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. 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.
