Our site is dedicated to helping people develop better stoves for cooking with biomass fuels in developing regions.

For additional detail and information, join the Cooking Stoves Mailing List, browse the archives, read about current projects and ask other cooking stove builders, designers, and organizations disseminating improved stoves around the world.

OK, the focus is not the best but this is the require for submission of stove samples.

The potential order size is large -

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

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:

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.

Hi all many of you don´t know me, I start 5 years ago with the help of Nancy Hughes from Stove Team International and with a little help form Carlos Santana, since then I have learn some stove principles desings with Larry Winiarski, 2 years ago the Global Alliance invite me to attend the wood cooking stove forum in Lima Peru, in the opportunities brought along a hybrid stove Rocket/TLUD similar to the DK stove. and I´m working with a metal rocket combustion chamber wich will be done next week, we´ll make some KPT for 2 months before I send pictures, but tomorrow I´ll post some pictures of my hybrid metal rocket-TLUD that I made 2 1/2 years ago.

this what I was talking about, I made this combustión chamber 2 years ago and is working good, I´m desingnig a stove at this momento with one of this combustión chambers. if someeno need plans and pictures just let me know, hofully some can make some imprivements

In their presentation at the GACC forum, Paul Means and Chris Lanning take a look at the supply chain problem with using woody biomass as a replacement for charcoal in urban areas, and they propose some ideas for equipment that may overcome those problems, as well as identifying some of the challenges to that approach.

A wonderful afternoon with Susan Kamau's Kenya Kitchens Cooking Club. Susan is a Global Alliance for Clean Cookstoves Ambassasdor Chef and we very pleased to partner with her to have a open afternoon at UCHUMI SUPERMARKETS LTD to hold a baking demonstration and discussion about energy conservation, clean cooking, nutritional baking as a business and of course healthy delicious eating!
