The increasing demand for energy has created concerns for the government to supply life line energy to all its citizens. Presently, the scientists are working on either developing or designing such systems that can convert the waste, timber or charcoal into useful energy sources with lesser carbon emission. These systems will not only generate energy but will also help in achieving the goal of reduced global carbon footprints. The wood gas generator is a type of generator that meets the above requirements. The wood gas generator can be used to convert the charcoal or timber into wood gas or syngas. The wood gas that is formed by the help of wood gas generator is a type of a syngas consisting of carbon monoxide, nitrogen, hydrogen and methane. The increasing temperature due to emission of green house gases coupled with the increasing demand for energy can have positive impact on the wood gas generator market.
The wood gas generator market can be segmented on the basis of the fuel source, applications and the geography. The basic fuel or the fuel source used by the wood gas generator for conversion into wood gas or syngas includes timber and charcoal. The timber used as a source fuel is a renewable resource and can be used multiple times. The syngas so produced is far cleaner than its counterparts and emits lesser carbon contents into atmosphere. The main problem that lies with the wood gas generators is the large size of the basic source or the source fuel. These large sized timbers and charcoals, unlike the petroleum fuel, cannot be easily transported through pipeline. The transportation of these fuels requires the use of heavy duty transport vehicles which, in turn, increases the cost of transportation alongwith the transit time. Another problem that is quite common with the use of wood or charcoal as a fuel, especially to run internal combustion engines or the gas turbines is associated with the negative impacts of humidity or moisture that results in the formation of wood tar. The wood gas generator is quite useful in the areas with large forest covers and can be used for the purpose of district heating. However, the market for the wood gas generators is still limited to countries in the northern hemisphere where it is used for space heating and district heating.
The wood gas generator market is present mainly in the United States and Canada in North America; Finland, Norway, Germany, the United Kingdom and Sweden in Europe; Japan and Korea in the Asia Pacific region; South Africa and Brazil in the Rest of the World.
The increasing demand for energy, lesser emission as compared to the petroleum fuels and uneven distribution of oil and gas reserves are the major drivers for the wood gas generator market. The problems associated with the transportation and storage of the woods and charcoals are the major restraints to the wood gas generator market. The large amount of forest cover in the untapped market of South American and Central African countries can act as opportunities for the wood gas generator market.
Some of the major companies in the wood gas generators market include L.E.A.F. Generator, GEK Gasifier, GASEK, Vulcan Gasifier and others.
