SUNY Cobleskill Invention to Aid in California Wildfire Cleanup

Researchers from SUNY Cobleskill, and partner Caribou Biofuels, have been hard at work to develop a new gasifier technology to help mitigate wildfires in California.

The gasifier eats up dead trees, and combustible material on the ground and turns it into clean-burning biofuel. What makes this gasifier unique is it’s the first of its kind that’s transportable, so it can be deployed in natural disasters anywhere that it’s needed. The technology will also create job opportunities in the ag-tech space.
