Manufacturing is helping improve the lives of women and girls in East Africa with its efficient charcoal-burning Jikokoa™ stove and opportunities for women to participate in its workforce. The stove itself represents a step-change in the design and efficiency of charcoal-burning cookstoves. As well as being an aspirational household product, it cuts down on smoke and soot by more than 60% compared to the widely used Kenya ceramic jiko. But it’s not just women using the stoves who benefit. With all manufacture now done in a new state-of-the-art factory in Kenya, BURN emphasises that all jobs are open to both men and women at all levels – just over half of its workforce are women.

SNV Uganda, Last Mile Intelligence Report
March, 2015

Background

Uganda’s energy consumption matrix stands at about 90% biomass, 7% petroleum products and 2% of electricity produced from hydro and thermal power plants. Only 12% of the total population is estimated to have access to electricity of which only 1% comprises the rural population. People in Uganda depend almost exclusively on dim kerosene-fired lamps for light. Around 95% of the country’s population have to use the expensive and dangerous fuel because they do not have access to the electricity grid ad other modern energy alternatives. To exacerbate the worrying situation, the use of biomass hugely depends on traditional technologies such as three-stone fireplaces that have very low efficiencies (10%-17%). Consequently, communities are facing growing scarcity of access to firewood and charcoal with demand ever increasing while supply remains unsustainable

Government, NGOs, private sector and development partners have been implementing
a number of improved cookstoves (ICS) interventions however, access to ICS remains very low especially in rural [last mile] communities. Most funding for ICS has been through projects and programmes that in the end fail to attain sustainability beyond the implementation period. Consequently, adopters are frustrated after project periods with no access to repair, new ICS and other related services.

SNV in the Energy Sector

SNV has been working in Uganda’s energy sector providing technical support to the Uganda Domestic Biogas Programme. In 2014, SNV expanded its portfolio in renewable energy sector by adding support to scaling up market-based approaches to distribution of improved cookstoves and Pico solar photovoltaic (PV) systems. SNV is working with stakeholders
to develop long-term sustainable market based solutions that will encourage investments from public and private sector stakeholders while scaling up access to ICS and pico solar PV among last mile consumers.

In the community of Besongabang, Cameroon the families often use firewood to process palm oil. The oil is sold to other communitiies, and the Besongabang families use the dried wastes (the leftovers of palm oil processing) to help light fires that are used for cooking, and palm processing.

The first 3 pictures of are of the palm oil processing practies of Besongabang, and the third picture is of the wastes, which are mostly dried. These wastes are often used to start the 3 stone family cooking files, but as Pearly Wong notes, the process of starting these fires is labor intensive. The sticks light easily, but the palm wastes frequently go out, and sometimes the fire must be started multiple times before any cooking can happen.

In this community, they are comfortable using stick wood and logs and there are no charcoal stoves or charcoal production. Groundwork volunteers have been talking through several options with other members of the Biomass Cooking Stoves list, and also with the families in Besongabang. It seems like an improved wood stove would be a good fit for this community especially if the problem of lighting the fires could be resolved, and the families value the improvements that may come in the form of less labor, less smoke or less fuel used.

Crispin Pemberton-Pigot and Christa Roth suggested using a lighting cone to help start the stoves. The lighting cone provides extra shelter from the wind and extra draft, and may help the families in Besongabang start their fires with fewer attempts and less wood.

I agree that burning wood and other fuels like that is not what the rural people of the world should be saddled with forever. They need the kind of cooking fuel I have.

But for now, we can really help them have healthier lives and less menial labor. There is no contradiction between helping out now with better wood stoves and knowing that their governments, central and local, must do more as quickly as possible to improve their access to good energy, water, housing and all the rest.

We are happy to bring our stove to the Maasai. We have 100% "sustained adoption" and the attached photo shows why. Yes, someday they will be much better off, we hope, and not need this sort of thing. But for now, to see Rhoda, cooking some beans with her grandchild on her lap, safe and smoke free, is a motivating image that makes us proud and happy.

Potential Energy http://www.potentialenergy.org/ stoves are the stoves original designed in the Berkley labs for Sudan (the Darfur region). They are an energy efficient stove designed with the cook's needs in mind.

They have recently added an orange 'cool mesh' to the outside of their metal stove to help protect the stove user (and their children) from burns. The second photo is of a stove field test, where ladies in Africa can see for themselves the advantages and disadvantages of several designs.

The Berkley stove is created out of metal and then shipped to local artisans who assemble the stove in the field. This video shows part of the process.

The stove was developed by Adrian Padt and Aidan Oosthuysen, and Richard Pocock, and uses a familiar Rocket design surrounded by a wire cage to improve the stove's stability and reduce burns. It's a smart looking stove, it saves women time and energy in gathering firewood, and it has lower emissions than the solutions it is typically replacing.

Lighting instructions:

The Rocket Works Stove, web site http://www.rocketworks.org/

  • The Rockt Works stove is a high efficiency wood burning stove, designed to accommodate multiple fuels when required.
  • It is smokeless after initial combustion, thereby reducing the likelihood of carbon monoxide poisoning and reducing the emission of black carbon particles.
  • The outer cage remains cool to touch even after hours of cooking, due to our innovative design.
  • It is made from high quality, heat resistant stainless steel allowing for years of regular use.
  • It can boil 5 liters of water in 15 minutes using as little as 250g of wood, which is significantly less than traditional cooking methods.
  • Its thermal efficiency is 45%, for the Large Pot High Power, performed by the SeTAR Thermal Efficiency Test.
  • Its emissions are the best in its class.

Basic Specification:

  • Mass: 2.95Kgs
  • Height: 270mm
  • Diameter : 240mm

We are trying to (a) reduce the amount of emmisisons from charcoal production and (b) Condense and recover as much of the smoke into a usable product for your home/farm. Wood tar - the following is an explanation from the good folks at Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO) about what is going on in this process.
"The non-water component consists of wood tars, both water soluble and insoluble, acetic acid, methanol, acetone and other complex chemicals in small amounts. If left to stand, the proligneous acid separates into two layers comprising the water insoluble tar and a watery layer containing the remaining chemicals. Recovery of the water insoluble tar, often called wood or Stockholm tar, is simple - it is merely decanted from the water phase. This wood tar has uses as a veterinary antiseptic, a preservative for wood, a caulking agent, and as a substitute for road tar" http://www.fao.org/docrep/x5328e/x5328e0d.htm
