Paul replies: Sorry, but the testing centers do NOT report BOTH the
FUEL consumption and the ENERGY consumption. A major point of the
Shields E450c method is to show the ENERGY consumption and the ENERGY
efficiency. It is the people who only talk about FUEL (and who avoid
acknowledging the difference concerning energy because of the energy in
the charcoal) who are the ones making the problem continue on and on and
When the statement finally comes about testing procedures and reporting
for pyrolytic stoves that produce charcoal, I hope that the distinction
between energy and fuel is clearly made AND is reported in each report
of a stove tested.
Although gasifiers have existed for a long time, gasifier STOVES
(especially those that yield charcoal) have not. So some changes are
needed in the reporting of the results.
