Development Work: Our PlanetStove is a medium size portable low-emission hybrid cookstove built on TLUD and Rocket stove technologies. It works with a variety of biomass, requires 30% less wood and supports larger pieces, it produces biochar as a by-product which has economical value and soil building properties. The PlanetStove also has an option to extend the fires lifetime by using the rocket mode. Through 2012-2013 we are manufacturing and distributing these for rural families in need in East Asia with our own investments and the support of many contributors. Our first batch is of 120 stoves. Manufacturing is done locally to support employment and minimize cost and footprint.
