Techlology Brief The gasificator works in the scheme of a downdraft gasifer, which is an improvement of the gasificator of Imbert. A combustible gas, wood gas, is drawn from wood through a means of thermochemical processes which take place in a specially designed reactor. The raw gas is then separated of dust and tars through a filtering system. This cleaned gas is then used to produce combined heat and power through a gas engine + generator. Unlike other CHP technologies which are based on the combustion of biomass, and require a working medium, (water in a steam turbine, heat oil in the ORC-process) wood gas cogeneration requires no intermediate medium thus resulting in a higher electrical efficiency throughout the entire system.
