Hi Tom:


We did a test once of lemon peels near Nelspruit,  they were mixed with some
wood feedstock, and they carbonized just fine. They tend to have a high MC
which must be dealt with.

I've had an inquiry from Southern Africa about orange peels. Does anyone
have experience carbonizing or gasifying orange peels? 


Do the burn in a TLUD? 


Do they make gas in an ARTI style compact digester?


Can you char them? ( If you can char an apple or a pizza I guess you can
char an orange.)
