Dear Friends

 

Her are two fuels that are abundant (in places) and really interesting to
work with. Both can be charcoaled and both are really strong.

 



Oil Palm Kernel Shells

 

And



Candle nut shells.

 

The price is something like $70 per ton. Moisture is low and energy ins in
the 18-19 MJ/kg range.  The can be burned in a TLUD to make charcoal, and
the charcoal is strong enough to sell in sacks.

 

The interesting about these fuels is they are not just available in many
thousands of tons, they pack quite well so a packed bed gasifier is a pretty
good burner.

 

For crossdraft and downdraft enthusiasts, they can also be used in hoppers
burning something and intermediate coal.

 

Regards

Crispin
