SUNY Cobleskill received a grant from the federal government to develop a building to house an experimental gasifier. The gasifier will use feedstock (wood, dried manure, dried vegetable waste, dried corn cobs) to produce flammable gas which will be contained within process piping and process vessels. This experimental installation is intended to determine how much flammable gas the feed stock can produce with the hopes that eventually this type of system could be designed to feed a turbine and create power. The building also includes classrooms, labs, and office space to study the process.
