[Stoves] Report from stoves conference

Hi Ron, or whomever else this message is sent to,
I'm an Architect outside of Philadelphia, Pennsylvania who has been
developing a small-scale, easily installed biogas digester system. I
anticipate applicability in developed and developing countries. I
logged onto the Stoves-list a month or so ago, and have found it very
interesting, as I'm looking for output devices that could burn biogas,
or wood, based on availability.
My question is that I'd like to find a list, or group, associated with
small scale biogas plants, similar to the stoves group. Similarly, does
ETHOS have any conferences, or other events, centered around digesters?
I was a Buckminster Fuller Challenge Grant finalist (not winner) and am
looking to get the concept into detailed development. I'd like to base
the system's details on real world experience.
Any ideas, or contacts, would be appreciated.

Hi all (2 lists)
There are perhaps100 persons at the ETHOS conference. My impression
is that all are pleased to be here - a well managed conference.. I was
last here about 5 years ago and have see a lot of progress in the stoves
area. Probably 80-90% of the attendees know about the stoves list. Tom
Miles has received a lot of deserved credit for his part in helping
stoves (and biochar) progress.
Biochar has been fairly prominent - even in the very first session
yesterday. But it is not the main topic of course and lots of attendees
not up to speed on the topic yet. My guess is that there are about 10
persons here who are biochar list members. Thee will be some
demonstrations later today - and expecting charcoal-making stove demos
by Paul Anderson and Nat Mulcahey (possibly another 6-8 demos of
More later. Any questions? Ron
