Corn As A Non-Ethanol Fuel Source

About This Publication

As a result of recent low corn prices, there has been interest in the use of corn as a heating fuel. Corn burning stoves and furnaces have been available for many years. Current technology has improved the efficiency of corn burning; hence, corn burners are becoming more economical. Corn burning stoves and furnaces feed corn from a holding bin into a firepot where the corn is burned and a small electric fan provides air for combustion. In general, corn-burning stoves heat one room. Corn burning furnaces have the ability to heat an entire house by using a heat exchange system somewhat similar to gas furnaces.
