Re: Solar chimney

I have a brother who works for the National Park Service. The Park Service has tried the solar chimney on both chemical and composting toilets. Engineers tried testing this to see what was going on as it did seem to work. What they found was that the wind accounted for the air movement. If you are going to do this, I would suggest testing it out first.Maybe a really tall chimney would work, but the boom and/or sails could be a problem. You would probably be better off with a battery powered fan with solar charging of the battery.
