Abstract

During times of electricity black outs, for families in remote areas, wood stoves are lifesaving sources of heat and allow hot meal preparation. A wood stove is needed that has a significant potential of energy generation while maintaining a low environmental impact. Biomass gasification allows for both heat production and potential promise of energy generation. A radiation shield installed into a gasifier has promise to significantly increase syngas production from biomass. This optimizes the biomass gasifier for low environmental impact. Tests will prove a percentage increase of biomass to syngas and emission analysis will determine environmental impact. The radiation shield optimization will allow individuals and families the comfort of both heat and electricity generation in one unit.
