A cadre of tinkerers is looking to end their own personal dependence on grid power by exploiting a resource left behind on the evolutionary path: Wood. Include also plants, algae, and anything burnable. The process that has inspired do-it-yourselfers to do it themselves isn't burning, per se, but gasification: the decomposition of biomass into gases that can then be burned cleanly. One of the companies that first got the attention of tinkerers was ALL Power Labs with the Gasifier Experimenter's Kit (GEK). Ben Peterson started Victory Gasworks in 2008. He initially purchased a GEK and discovered that the kit was not something he could turn into the refined and sophisticated machine he had in mind. He began to tinker with the design, introducing a more efficient filtration system and a different overall shape for better suck and evenness of temperature. Surprisingly, some people are taking their gasifiers and turning them into on-board refineries in their vehicles.
