I stumbled on this thing called the electricity freedom system, by Rich Lubbock. I did not buy it or anything. Especially because I looked for reviews and the ones I found seemed like just advertisements for the system.
But it did make me curious if a retrieval of energy through decomposition could be possible and anywhere as efficient as advertised.
and saying that this can be built for $200. Is quite not in the realm of what I would consider possible.
using plywood and other easy to source parts and using a gas that is not quite biogas that is more efficient supposedly seems dodgy to me to say the least. Don't get me wrong. I do believe that it is possible to create a tremendous amount of energy with grass or corn just by fermenting it. I as a child had first hand experience with a feed called Silage created by compressing grass or corn (the whole Plant stalk and all) Chopped up and then compressed with tractor, the grass was compressed as is. tarps covering it. Then dirt and old tires covered the mound. Interestingly enough two things #1 was while it is fermenting the mount puts out warmth for a while. #2 After a few months when we started to take the silage to feed the animals even in freezing temperatures as soon as the silage is exposed to the air it became warm, actually warm enough to "steam " kinda like breath in the cold. so there is quite a bit of energy Stored in vegetation.
I would be really interested, if any of you know about any of these systems. I would like to know if the electricity freedom system sort of works, if anyone has any info on this or any other system based on decomposition to create energy.
