The Making of a Rocket Stove

Rocket_Stove_detailsWhat is a Rocket Stove?

  • A rocket stove produces a very intense, very hot, smokeless flame using small amounts of wood
  • A rocket stove is an efficient cooking stove using small diameter wood fuel which is burned in a simple high-temperature combustion chamber containing a vertical chimney, which ensures almost complete combustion prior to the flames reaching the cooking surface.

Why a Rocket Stove?

  • It uses less fuel, therefore lower cost.
  • It produces a very high heat output.
  • It produces smoke only at the beginning.
  • It reduces the exposure to indoor air pollution.
  • It reduces lung, heart and eye problems.
  • It reduces CO2 emissions and deforestation.
