Hi James,

I'm a bit remiss on keeping up with all going on with charcoal makers of late, but what size production are you offering/hour? Comments made to me relate to speeds of the cycle if time dependent or tonnage if continuous.

I will be flying to Brisbane again in a couple of weeks, so wonder where you are located or operating from and can possibly arrange a visit? I don't have much spare time, but might be able to meet up if the distance is not great, and it would be good to handle the local product(:-)

Doug Williams,

> Doug, as a proponent and developer of continuous charcoal production equipment I second your motion that charcoal gasifiers should get more attention ... after all a good charcoal has less than one tenth the tar production potential of woody biomass. After all that is mostly what char production is about, removing  volatile matter to leave a carbon rich product. Of course the volatile matter that is released must be used and dealt with responsibly ... I don't want to advocate for the great billowing char pits and kilns of the 19th century.
