    Why not run Bio pellets in a fluidized reactor, very effecient and effective.

    personally ive found that a godo brand of vodca is the easiest and 'cleanest' source of carbon to dose. although i would also suggest going with Alans suggestion of NP reactor, if youve read up correctkly on their useage.
