To meet their cooking energy needs, large numbers of households in the country’s poorer, rural areas use traditional chulha/ stoves, which consume firewood and other biomass as fuel. The fuel efficiency of traditional chulha’s is very very low and burning solid fuels indoors is a major risk factor for lung cancer and cardiovascular and respiratory disease. Innovator made a stove is a double-chambered efficient portable stove. It can use coconut shells or wood as fuel. It improvised the stove by incorporating a secondary combustion chamber for burning the un-burnt biomass and hydrocarbons coming out with the smokes/exhaust. As a result, the thermal efficiency of the stove has improved while the pollution has been reduced.
