Comment on this "Gasification Machine"


I caught the last few seconds of a news spot on this. The thing looks like like a coal train engine turned inside-out. I was even less impressed that it was Marion “the bitch set me up” Barry acting like a gameshow prize model, grinning and gestering towards the monstrosity. I can’t dig up any links to pictures, and there is very little available online about the inventor, Simon Romana.

Anybody know anything about this machine? Is the input of energy plus biomass supposed to generate more energy at the output?

Didn’t Dean Kamen invent one of those a few years back?

Sounds like a simple methane burning engine connected to a generator.
