Georges Imbert

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Georges Christian Peter Imbert (26 March[1] 1884 – 6 February 1950) was a French chemical engineer and inventor.

He was born in Niederstinzel, Lorraine. His father Pierre Imbert sent him to study chemical engineering in Higher School of Chemistry (French: l'Ecole Supérieure de Chimie) in Mulhouse, Alsace. He was very gifted and filed his first patent at the age of 20 still being a student of the school which he graduated in 1905.[2] Around 1920 he developed the wood gas generator for the automobile that was commonly used in Europe until petroleum fuel became more economical in the region. He died, aged 65, in Saar Union, Alsace.
