SUNY Cobleskill Gasifier Wins $5.8M Wildfire Grant

A $5.8 million grant from the California Department of Forestry and Fire Protection was awarded to the State University of New York (SUNY) at Cobleskill for a gasifier project that converts woody biomass into clean burning fuel.

The grant project is led by SUNY Cobleskill visiting professor David Waage and uses his patented inclined rotary gasifier, initially funded by the EPA and Department of Defense in 2008, to create a mobile gasifier that can complement existing wildfire reduction efforts. The unit processes about a ton of wood an hour and generates biofuels, biopower and biochar, producing enough fuel to power approximately 50 homes.
