The Wood 103 | Otherpower This page is all about a rather silly, quick project where in about 1 day I built a small wind generator using the following items, and nothing else.... (1) Wood (2) Copper wire (3) Surplus Neodymium magnets (4) Dirt (5) 10" piece of 3/8" steel shaft (6) Two bolts, but these are optional. ...and that's all, unless we count glue, and linseed oil which I used for finishing. Pictured above is one of the magnets I used. Above you can see the armature for the alternator. Pictured above you see the wooden pillow block bearings. The stator, on which the coils are wound was cut from two pieces of 2" X 4" lumber. I dragged a magnet around in the dirt of my driveway, so that it would attract the magnetite sand. The dirt was mixed with epoxy, so that I had a thick paste. The completed alternator! To stay with the "style" of the project I decided to build the whole windmill out of wood, it's a fairly simple design and should be self explanatory. The prop is wooden, made from 1" X 4" lumber.

Woodgas Stove Camping Equipment 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. History[edit] The first wood gasifier was apparently built by Bischof in 1839. Wood gas vehicles were used during World War II, as a consequence of the rationing of fossil fuels. Wood gasifiers are still manufactured in China and Russia for automobiles and as power generators for industrial applications. A wood gas truck in North Korea. Usage[edit] Internal combustion engine[edit]

Parabolic solar oven The idea is that if the parabola is cut symmetrically along 8 radial directions and flattened out, then it would appear like an 16-petalled flower. So once you have the petals made of any flexible material you can bend them in the shape of a parabola. I used 5 mm thick plywood. I think you can use a thinner plywood, but then you'll need to add a stronger structure to stiffen the parabola. I used this publication to calculate the dimensions of the petals. Here is a google spreadsheet with everything you need (you can download it to modify it). modify the focal length of the parabola modify the number of petals choose the length of the petals I've also included a petal in svg that I created using Inkscape. Once you've cut the petals, drill holes every 20 cm along the sides of the petals so that you attach them together with the plastic cable ties.

Sundrop Fuels, Inc. Biomass Energy Crop & Biomass Power Working Group. Biomasse torréfiée, le charbon vert de demain - News - Actualités - CleantechAlps Aujourd'hui, le charbon est la première énergie consommée par l'industrie mondiale mais c'est aussi la première source d'émissions de C02. Une alternative existe : il s'agit de la biomasse, utilisée en co-combustion avec du charbon dans certains pays d'Europe comme la Belgique, la Pologne, les Pays-Bas et la Scandinavie. Mais celui-ci présente quelques inconvénients majeurs en termes de coût de transport et de stockage, d'absorption d'humidité et d'investissements importants par rapport aux systèmes d'alimentation, différents de ceux du charbon. Plusieurs entités européennes dont le Laboratoire des Systèmes industriels de Bioénergie (IGT-SiB) de la HEIG-VD, travaillent sur une nouvelle forme de combustible, plus performant et plus propre encore que le précédent : la biomasse torréfiée. La torréfaction consiste à chauffer la biomasse contenant 20% d'humidité à une température comprise entre 250 et 300°C afin que l'eau s'évapore et ce, de manière irréversible. Contact Prof.
