..not "an", but many ideas; depends on your fuel, and your fuel
use efficiency.  Also, your fuel may have a "current" emmission
impact, e.g. MSW loses a good third of its weight as "landfill 
gas", commonly 55%N2, 45% CO2+CH4 that would run engines instead
just smelling badly to form a baseline to a sexy air cleaner  
gasifier emission figure going "below zero." ;o)

  Scenarios always come in sets of three: 
  best case, worst case, and just in case.
