I'm in Western NY, more dairy belt than corn (and we have an ethanol plant
to compete with). I assume their numbers are based on the current market
price which indeed would likely be lower than the delivered price in NH.


Cool (or hot, as it were)! Personally I use used motor oil for lighting my
woodstove. I love those ads about not dumping it down the sewer. They're
saying "Save the planet" and I'm thinking "Stop wasting the Oil!"


I think it was Farm Show magazine that just had an article on wood brick
machines. I hadn't even heard of them before. I just skimmed the article but
they had a picture of a machine about five foot square with wood bricks
coming up out of two chutes as they were formed.
Okay, looked again. No website (?!?!?) but they are looking for dealers.
Business option for you? You can also write for a list of dealers. If you
want their address let me know.


I had to use a wood fire to get it going, but then just started shovelling
in the corn by itself. It burned way too hot and fast for my indoor stove,
but with a regulated draft outdoor stove or mixed with wood it would
probably work fine. This was another Farm Show idea and I think the guy in
that article had an Aqua-Therm stove (round black boiler looking thing?).

Nothing new here.  I've heard Willie Nelson's bus exhaust smells like a
restaurant from the used cooking oil he burns.

one time woody harlesons hemp powered bus got stuck at the KOA near here.  
He had barrels of fuel in the bus, but didn't have a bung puller.  Pretty
funny they came around the local gas station looking for some kind of
tool to get at the fuel. My buddy who runs the station got him back on
the road.

It is how they are processing it, and able to process large scale bio-fuels
that is different.
