Ulrich Graf: Low Cost Charcoal Gasifiers for Rural Energy Supply.

GATE/Vieweg, Braunschweig/Wiesbaden 1994. 49pp. DM 12,80. ISBN 3-52802076-8.

Gasifier-engine systems with 2-10 kW power output could be a very versatile equipment for rural energy supply in developing countries, especially for irrigation pumps, grate mills, small workshops and village electrification. In this report, the ferrocement construction of gasifiers is discussed. A considerable reduction of cost is possible.

The economic viability of a gasifier-engine system of this type depends mainly on local costs for biomass fuel and operating personnel.
