Biomass Fuel: Kilowatts From Corn Cobs

Small communities could realize an economic gain from recycling corn cobs into biomass fuel for electrical generation.

biomass fuel - corn cob-powered electrical generator
Odin Associates' diesel-powered 35-KW generator runs on gas produced from burning corncobs. A small amount of liquid fuel is required for ignition and lubrication, but this particular unit is 80% corn-fed! Simplicity and low initial investment cost were the project objectives.
