From Alexis Belonio:
Good morning!!

Attached are the info on the latest development on rice husk gas stove in India. Just to update you that rice husk gas stove is now being commercialized by Navdurga Metal Industries of India.

From the India Economic Times:

The three-year-old startup based at Faizabad in Uttar Pradesh has created rice husk-powered, smokeless biomass cooking stoves that significantly reduce the cost of household spending on conventional fuel sources such as LPG, electricity, kerosene, wood and wood charcoal. "Rice husks can give about 3,000 kilo calorie of energy, compared with wood that gives between 3,800 and 4,000. These stoves reduce carbon emissions, and cooking costs significantly," said Jaiswal, 31. Nav Durga's first product, aptly named Janta Chulha Smokeless Stove, was launched in 2009 and priced at Rs 500. It has now launched a range under the brand name, Agni, which caters to both domestic and industrial customers. "We currently manufacture up to domestic 10,000 cook stoves and about 50 commercial stoves a month. We want to ramp that up to 20,000 domestic and up to 1,000 commercial stoves soon," Jaiswal said.

According to recent industry data, about 67% of Indian households, adding up to about 166 million households, continue to use solid fuels as their primary source of cooking fuel. While conversion to modern fuels has accelerated in urban areas, rural areas have been slow. Saurabh and the firm's co-founder Arvind Jaiswal, 56, have set up their own distribution and supply chain system. The startup currently has about 50 distributors spread across Uttar Pradesh, Bihar, Assam and Punjab. The company employs about 50, spread across two facilities in Faizabad and Faridabad, in Haryana. "The manufacturing is done by local talent alone," Jaiswal said.

ove Camp 2013 ----- July 22-26,2013 ----- Cottage Grove, Oregon

“Great Stoves” to meet the Global Alliance standards for clean, efficient, and safe cooking.”
Co-hosted by InStove, Aprovecho Research Center, and Paul “Dr. TLUD” Anderson
The Global Alliance for Clean Cookstoves is establishing standards, and this summer’s stove camp is going to focus on the design and delivery of stoves that meet them. We will be looking at the various proposed tiers of stove performance and see which stoves fall into what classifications. We’ll also be exploring design considerations for producers who are interested in building top-tier stoves.

Schedules will be available in early June.
For details, email Stella Strother-Blood at: Stella@instove.org. or Mike Hatfield: apromike@gmail.com

More pictures of Jed's work on Stoves and also a pdf of Jed's work on stoves and ovens

Also take a look at http://www.stoves.bioenergylists.org/Holey-Roket-2013
for other pictures of this type of stove.

Jed started with the Rok Oblak Holey Roket stove:
http://stoves.bioenergylists.org/taxonomy/term/243

and has been making improvements to the design detailed in the pdf, and has these lovely stoves made with the help of the artists he's been working with in the Philippines.

These are the features that he's working to include in the latest batch of stoves:

  • A side fed fuel chamber allows for continuous cooking.
  • Better flame control.
  • Eliminating the risk of handling hot char.
  • Allowing for multiple fuel types
  • Clay is less expensive than metal.
  • Clay stimulates employment, social inclusion, and creativity
  • Clay stoves are heavier and brittle but they outlast equivalent metal stoves, some lasting for longer than 3 years of continuous use.

The document “Mechanisms for Evaluating and Achieving Efficacy of Household Energy interventions” from

http://community.cleancookstoves.org/user_content/files/002/955/2955562/...

is asking very pertinent questions that the CSI team in Indonesia has been grappling with, and I think making very good progress. I recommend everyone read and ponder the past portion, at least:

  1. The plan that is developed will have to be implementable, technically feasible, cost-effective, repeatable, and supported by multiple stakeholders. Will we have capacity to do conduct and enforce testing according to any requirements that are set?
  2. To implement any proposed plan, are there additional requirements beyond protocols, standards, indicators, tiers, and best practices? For example, do we need a serial numbering system? What are the data sharing needs?
  3. Stove usage and stacking is a particularly challenging issue to address. What aspects can be addressed through standards versus using feedback from customer purchase decisions? Does the mechanism change depending on whether stoves are subsidized or not?
  4. What are the short-term practical mechanisms, and what are the long-term implementable mechanisms? How can we plan to move from the short-term to a sustainable long-term solution?

They are correctly identified as ‘over-arching questions’. There are other questions in the rest of the text that will be of great interest to testers and developers.

The first two stoves in the attached i already am making since the past years. And recently, i have been teaching women and soon their husbands to also make their rocket stoves here in the province of Bulacan under a disaster preparedness program by the Save the Children International. They also make their own designs of flowers, castle towers, chess characters, and faces into their stoves.

the drawing in the third attachment is a prototype in process. It is a Holey Rocket Stove with a char pocket on the side and a box as a platform. I hope to finish it in the coming weeks.
