Fatboy Gasifier in Israel
Nadav from Israel lives in a kibbutz close to the Dead Sea. Nadav and his mate Ahmed have developed a Fatboy Gasifier using recycled local materials, a pressure tank from an old hot water system and a 44 gallon drum. They are still tweaking the unit and working to get the air flow and gas burn working well. The latest photos Nadav sent showed the unit running cleanly and producing biochar. Some of the early photos below show smoke being produced from the unit, with some tweaks and feedback from myself, Nadav now has a starting point of low emission and Biochar creation. They have given the unit the Hebrew name ‘Shmendrik’ which is Fatboy in Yiddish language.
