efficient easy-to-build cookstove using indigenous materials
Main Discussion Members Files
[edit][history][add page]
Charcoal-based cookstoves in less-developed areas, during use by poor people, release substantial soot and smoke, weakening users and neighbors while worsening the greenhouse effect and wasting fuel, compared to improved models, but the improved models are made with imported, thus expensive, parts and materials. Can we do better than either of these, while using materials and methods widely available in less-developed places? Perhaps rocket stoves of local clay could match imported stove performance and existing stove affordability.
