energy-saving stove
zimbabwe life
summer, 2002

extremely fuel-saving oven,
low on fumes,
the mud stove with 84 % efficiency 

3 points speak for this oven:

  • a major contribution to the preservation of endangered forests in dry regions with relatively dense populations, saves on firewood, which must be carried long distances on foot
  • since fumes do not develop in the house, chronic bronchial illnesses can be prevented, the long-lasting heat from the stove also improves living conditions
  • the low-energy stove is made of locally-available raw materials to keep costs down as much as possible
target groups:
  • all institutes for third world development and organizations concerned with renewable energy sources
  • those segments of the population who live in deforested and sensitive ecosystems
