They don't really explain any details. What's missing is also the end
product weight or volumes.
But they definitely claim that it is exothermic.

I don't know either, but they should have used a security valve to blow off
at over 25 bar or so.
They don't mention any input volumes and if air is needed. If it isn't,
then I would just fill all the ingredients in, add water to the max and
leave 10ml air for the external air pressure gauge ;) If the thing blows up
then there won't happen much, contrary to an air tank where shrapnel would
be blown all around.
So my guess is there is air needed, else it wouldn't be so complicated?

Yes it is, for now. It is said to be fairly cheap, also. At 300 - 900 EUR,
I second that. I can imagine a system where the pressure is stored and
reused, but that would be more complicated.

They claim it is a carbonization, where the biomass is converted into more
useful stuff. 20% of the carbon is used in the process for the heating
(hence exothermic), 80% is present in the resulting
I did not research further, if you have any news or better background
information then please share it. I stopped researching when I read
something in the "free energy will save the world" style and because of the
fact, that it is not yet on the market, nor has the principle proven to be
successful or popular since it has been tested for over 40 years now.
