GTZ Probec Protos Stove Tests Tanzania

GTZ Probec Protos Stove Tests Tanzania
Christa Roth, GTZ Probec, September 26, 2006

To give feedback on the Bosch-Siemens PROTOS plant oil stove when using Jatropha oil:
The long term test of the Jatropha oil being used in the BSH stove is currently under way in Tanzania in cooperation with GTZ-ProBEC. Preliminary tests are giving very positive results, even though with Jatropha oil being produced on small scale. Purity of the oil seems to play a crucial role, but we will be able to tell more early 2007.
The stove is designed for using straight plant oils, no need to convert them into Biodiesel. However, Biodiesel can also be used.

<p>Dear Christa Roth,</p> <p>Dear Mmadame,<br /> We are interested with Protos stove, could you inform<br /> the specification in details?<br /> Where we can get it for our study?<br /> Thanks.</p>

<p>The more pure is the cooking oil the healthier is the food but also more expensive. So to keep a good balance between expensive and healthy I have a <a href="http://www.instawares.com/supreme-metal.392.3.8031.0.0.8.htm">supreme metal</a> to help me cook healthy meals, oil is not always necessary. Thank you for keeping us updated on our options!</p>
