Project: Wood Gasification Pilot Project
This project involved a technical review of a commercially available wood gasifier with locally produced fuel wood.The technical research was completed by the Saskatchewan Research Council. Fuel-wood procurement was undertaken by Tayler Krawczyk of Hatchet & Seed. The focus was on small scale wood procurement, as done by a single operator with minimal machinery, so as to reflect the feasibility of cottage-scale woodgas energy in remote locations.
A public demonstration was held to show members of the forestry & logging community with an interest in alternative energy production how the unit works.
This report is an overview of the wood selection and chipping process which took place in July of 2012 at the Ness Creek Ecological Site.
