Re: Wood-Fired Steam Engine to Drive Generator?

Interesting, though wood takes a while to replace. What about methane from a sewer tank/compost pile?
Though that may not generate enough to last a while either.

I saw such a thing at a landfill I used to go to in GA. They would burn off the methane and use the heat to produce steam to drive a turbine to produce some of the power the landfill used. They also had solar cells and a wind turbine going.
