Students in this program must complete required courses in addition to 66 complementary courses and a seminar course. They also complete a project that is less involved than a thesis and may involve a limited research project, or a technical or design study. Graduates of this program are well-prepared for carrying out research and development in industry and may also proceed to further research at the . level.


The general idea : Biomass, if burned in an oxygen low (controlled) environment will produce (mainly) hydrogen, carbon monoxide, carbon dioxide, tars and bio crude. Laymen's terms: If you burn wood the right way you get flammable smoke ! That gives a new meaning to the term smoke bomb.

Syngas producing systems can use most any biomass not just charcoal, including waste products from farming/food production for example, straw or shrub, quick growing willow, gasification systems are extremely practical, look at is as a form of solar power, nature also lets us store that energy (biomass) for when we need it, there will always be waste or quick growing biomass so there will always be gasification.

I love the good intention behind this project, but it would need to be paired with an initiative to upgrade charcoal-making facilities (. clean charcoal kilns). Or you could try to use biochar instead of traditional charcoal.

I am going to play with this. I have rebuilt or modified many devices to not put out any or very low carbon. All have passed the emissions test .One of my friends has a wood gasifier he will help me with this project. Thank you of posting this emagen the posabilatys

Thus, a spinning coil, in a fixed magnetic field will produced an alternating current, one that travel first in one direction and then in the opposite.  The rate at which the current switches back and forth is as its frequency.  Ordinary household current alternate at a frequency of 65 times per seconds or 65 hertz.

The turbine type is selected based on the speed range and power capacity of alternator to be used.  It can be noticed in the figure that pelton turbine is a quite universal turbine.  It is not always restricted to high head, but of the power transmitted is low, then the pelton will also run on low heads, although at slow rotational speed.  In this pico hydro system, Kaplan type of reaction turbine is used to generate electricity.
