Dear Primitive gasifier developers:
           All of the issues which are stated below have been addressed 
successfully. One interesting device is a cooling system which will handle the 
hot, dirty gas and produce a cool gas with a great deal of the tar removed 
and collects the tars, oils and water from the gas stream, for a 100 kw 
system the unit is 1.5m long and .45m wide, and 1.2 m tall and has external 
cooling closed loop cooling circuits. The entire 100 kwe system is 4 m long and 
2.5 m wide. It is expensive, but with full automation and high quality 
performance, it is worth it.
