According to Open Source Ecology, 50 industrial machines are necessary for building a small, sustainable civilization. Of those 50, 13 have been prototyped as of spring 2014. We designed a biomass pelletizer in Solidworks, which is one of the 37 machines remaining. A biomass pelletizer is a machine that converts biological material into pellets that can be burned efficiently to produce usable power.
