[Gasification] reducing temp. of gasification

Perhaps we should make a container which is heated by the exhaust gas from the very generating set that burns the very gas we are producing.
I am sure I have seen my exhaust pipe glow, reaching 700 deg when under full load.

Dear All,
ne requires about 700C temperature for making producer gas. This is
enerally achieved by burning the feedstock itself, for which one
ntroduces external air into the reactor. As a result, the producer
as gets diluted by the nitrogen in the air. If the process can be
onducted in a closed vessel, which is heated from the outside, one
an get combustible gas without all the nitrogen, but heating the
eedstock inside a container cannot achieve the temperature that is
equired for producing producer gas, so that what one gets is
rimarily tar vapour. Has anyone thought of using a catalyst for
etting pyrolysis gas at say 300 C? It would help me greatly, if such
 catalyst were available.
