Control software

Step by step are the pieces coming together. The Raspberry Pi was not reliably for real time operation so we added an Arduino for the critical timing communication over the I2C bus. The Arduino in combination with the ACS712 samples and calculates the total electrical power consumption of the furnace.

About Egidius Kuhlmann

Reading about peak-oil, overpopulation, “Terra Preta” and biochar in 2009 and after making batches biochar for soil improvement from garden residue, I thought, why not make biochar from corpses. Deeply worried about the unsustainable path 'we' as humanity have taken, I see a future where fossil fuels are scarce, the western economic growth model in tatters, the global temperature rises due to the CO2 concentration in the atmosphere with an growing population reaching billions more humans than is sustainable? Thinking along those paths, the question “how can we dispose so efficiently and with the least amount of energy of human remains” became the starting point.
