Thanks Otto, 
I totally agree with you on the importance of biomass fuel and refinement, which can subsequently be linked to stoves. 
As well it is my pleasure to give people the credits they deserve! and Paal is definitely among those. 

On the same note, let me change the subject line to give credit to GIZ HERA who made the publication possible. So I try to post this text below that I posted earlier today on the stoves-list as well to the other lists ( I hope it goes through as I do not subscribe there)
Regards Christa

Text posted earlier today on the stoves-list (sorry for repeating the text again):

Originally I planned to publish the link of the new gasification manual after ironing out some glitches … but it seems I have been taken over by events. So here it comes:  
let me officially announce the new edition of the Micro-gasification Manual of the Programme "Poverty-oriented Basic Energy Services (HERA)"  implemented by the Deutsche Gesellschaft fuer Internationale Zusammenarbeit (GIZ) GmbH."  


The manual is going to be published also in a printed version later this month.

The manual was only finalized this week, and the website is not yet fully in shape. There are more GIZ-HERA publications to come towards the end of the month (I will announce once they can be accessed). As many people are waiting for it, I asked for the micro-gasification manual to go online first. Thanks to the GIZ-colleagues this happened yesterday.

I want to take the opportunity to thank Heike Volkmer for the hard work as an editor to get thus far, as well as the co-authors of chapter two, Dr Paul Anderson and Dr Hugh McLaughlin, and the authors of chapter five, Kelpie Wilson and Thayer Tomlinson (please take note of the correct spelling of her surname...) for their contributions. 

Thanks also go to all the numerous people who shared information and contributed to make this manual more comprehensive and meaningful. 

The new edition has better looks thanks to the help of a professional designer contracted by GIZ. I personally think the new info graphics are stunning and hope you agree that this was worth waiting for.

The new version features many topics of recent discussions on the list, e.g. find a double page on the Goldstandard-project by Servals and Atmosfair with the Champion stove TLUD in the Sundarbans on pages 62/63 (actually one of my favorite pages in the whole book).

Enjoy reading!
