Improved Cookstoves

To save wood, one of the most valuable energy resources in a rural community, a range of cookstoves were developed and experimented in RDC Congo (ex-Zaire), Rwanda and Burundi.

A kiln designed to cure ceramic liners for more efficient cookstoves called Jiko in Tanzania and Kenya and Mbabula in RD Congo.

Retorting firewood into charcoal in a kiln (here metallic) densifies the energy amount contained in biomass, reduces its weight and increases its value. Increasing efficiency of cookstoves and saing firewood, the primary energy source of the majority of the rural populations in developing countries, have both serious impacts on CO2 emission reduction.
