That behemoth has been "demonstrated" all over the country and no one wants it. It's basically an overhyped biomass disposal unit that creates more CO2 from the fossil fuel inputs than it saves in biochar - and it wastes all of the generated heat.

But you can own your own for a mere $600,000!

It's based on a device known as an "air curtain burner" that burns large quantities of biomass with very little smoke. They have modified it with a bunch of expensive add-ons that result in the capture of about 5% of the material as biochar.

Our system utilizes all of the heat and yields 30% biochar.

It will do nothing to mitigate global warming.

I think my point was that there is beginning to be a lot of interest in bio-char, The Nebraska Forest Service has expressed an interest in it and I suppose other states might be looking into it as well. The Great Plains Biochar Initiative looks like an interesting prospect and even if this particular piece of machinery is a fail there will be others, like yourself, creating other machines that won't fail.

I'm in contact with the Nebraska Forest Service and we might have an opportunity to build a system for a large greenhouse operation there. They also have a large federal grant to investigate and certify the feeding of biochar to livestock. The supplier of the biochar they are using for that is in Wyoming and we are in discussions about building him a system to replace the one he is currently using.

Things are moving, but slowly. If I had the financial and PR backing that The Beast has, we'd be global by now.

Geez, I didn't think you wanted to fight. That might be kinda funny, though, two old codgers tripping over their shoelaces and huffing and puffing around in slow circles trying to remember "yo mama" insults......
