Right and with wood-gas we cut it with nitrogen...

Moisture is in the air that an engine breaths. Some people even add
water injection systems on their engines. Moisture in wood-gas, ouch.
The sulfur is a larger problem.

I don't think Craig or AD were involved with Custody Transfer.

About 20 miles from here is a land fill that has been generating
electric with several large Cat engines fueled with land fill gas and
they have been chugging along for about ten years now. No idea how much
they clean the gas.
