Default DIY biomass heat generation



Here is an interesting build. I can't read it very well, but google translate definitely helps. The update looks like they were getting 50-60C (122-140F) water out of this thing. That sounds pretty nice. The link has a fair amount of pictures too.

I compost all the manure, waste hay, leaves and other bio stuff and the pile does REALLY heat up But only for a few months. Then the pile has collapsed (80% reduction in volume) and I can't imagine digging out all that plastic pipe.

Hey guys,

just found your post and thought I have to reply
The "biomeiler" (eco-kiln) construction manual mentioned in the post on the Linaria-ev.de website is already translated to english. The only thing missing is to review and correct some minor errors. I hope I'll be able to finish it by end of the year.
Meanwhile if you got any questions feel free to ask

@steve
we are mainly using wood chips. Therefore the eco kiln is running up to 1 1/2 years. The decrease of volume is not that dramaticall. I would say about 30%.
Hehe yeah but you're right. The digging out the pipes need to be done carefully (if you want to reuse it). We added a net on top of the pipes which makes it alot easier

And finally.... it took longer then expected but finally the English translation is ready. You can download the DIY manual for the EcoKiln (still not sure if its the right word ) here:

Eco-Kiln brushwood compost - Linaria e.V.

Its open source (CC-licence) so you may spread it to everyone who is interested

I've long appreciated the work of Jean Pain. Oh to have spent an afternoon or two with him! But, I've never read anything about removing the composted material and maintaining the heat? Is there any way to make this a continuous process or is strictly a long term batch process?
