Most of our robots are electric, so we’re always on the lookout for ways to operate them cleanly. Developing and automating clean woodgas generators is a good way to do that in environments where batteries are scarce. So we did. If you’re interested in gasifier automation, contact us or check out our store.

Working with SITES Srl, we provided design and autonomous control solutions for a gasification power plant, as well as a series of small-drop hydroelectric projects. While gasification is not a popular technology in the Americas due to the US encouraging the greater use of coal, in Eastern Europe, wood gas systems are popular due to their renewable fuel source and relatively clean burning.
