Looks like you have started something which is developing a life of it’s own. It is great to see others taking what you taught them and running with it. It gives us hope that we are having a positive impact on society in some small extent.

Reading here is one of the last stops on my internet daily tour of news and information.
Most of the time I am left with a feeling very disillusioned by the state of the world. ( after reading my news papers that is )
But then I read something like this thread and I feel a little uplifted

Monks using wood gas, there is just something fair and honest about it.
It can improve the quality of life without harming the earth or exploiting people.
Well maybe it mighty do a little harm in deforestation but the over all benefits of it greatly outweigh the harms.
And those harms can be further mitigated by improved farming forestry practices

I asked how much you are working with the monks? The 3 wheeled moped had a lot of Koen Van Looken showing in it. Also the other gasifier. TomC

Looking at the charcoal retort, am I correct in thinking that the outer rings are made of concrete? Is it able to take the heat without cracking or wearing away? If it is concrete, what went into the mix besides Portland Cement and Sand?

hi Tom,

They did build copy’s from my earlier work based on the info found on my postings and with some guidance i give them.
Its imperative that they can improve themselves and that they get a profound understanding of what they are doing, not just copying but learning by doing.
