[Gasification] the most important thing (quite possibly) > i've learned to date

   Pushing calories around in the DTU graphic model, I find moving heat into the fuel is indeed the best use, for loose BTUs.
 In practice, heat transfer into wood is not easy because of limited conduction and radiation, and zero convection in a mound of fuel.
 The GEK method is like stir-frying vegetables in a wok; forcing convection. As each particle, contacts the walls of the pyrocoil; they cook.

Someday I want to attempt direct contact of the wood with engine exhaust gas, after solving a certain sealing problem. 
A "just in time" inventory of heated wood; roasted to perfection.
It is a shovel ready project.

Looking forward to your findings.
