Re: Why I distrust the stove and pellet industries
Paul S Anderson
Thanks for the link to that article. But I did not see an promotion of a pellet stove.
Issues like noise pollution etc are lamentable but not unique to pellet factories. That is anti-industry abuse, but not anti-pellet.
Big issue is that the pellets are being burned to heat plus ash instead of being pyrolyzed to heat plus charcoal/biochar. MAJOR DIFFERENCE.
Yes, there are excellent pyrolytic cookstoves (TLUD style) that use pellets extremely well. But projects cannot be based on selling a few hundred stoves. Minimum suggested is 2000 reasonably close together, and with a pellet supply chain. I work with such proposals (not yet projects) with carbon sequestration credits for sustainability. But up-front starting capital is needed.

Does anyone remember the NYT story a year or so ago that touted some new pellet stove as the savior of our climate and champion of our forests and environment?
