Imagine if it were possible to make a small change in the way that wood is converted to heat energy so that 1 million trees could be saved from being cut over the next 10 years.
Imagine if all it took was a simple redesign of the humble wood fuel stove, so that instead of being 15% efficient, it could 85% efficient.
Imagine if this simple redesign already existed and is being used in many parts of the world… but nobody thought to take it to a region that desperately needs it.

Benefits of the Himalayan Rocket Stove
- Great reduced wood fuel load…
- Saves 1 Mature Tree for every Stove in Use
- Saves 100 Back Breaking Loads down the mountains
- Saves 3500kg of CO2 from being released to the atmosphere
We’re working to make these stoves available to the 10 million homes & 50 million people of the Himalayas.
The Smokeless Cookstove Revolution is coming!
This is started as a side project of the Himalayan Rocket Stove project, but has become an incredibly important one. In the process of prototyping the internal design for our stoves in the Himalayas, we came up with a cheap, easy and very practical way to make smokeless cookstoves from clay. This is an adaptation of various ideas that already exist, but with some key features we’ve not seen implemented by anyone else.
There are more than 4 million people (mostly women and children) who die from various illnesses related to Household Air Pollution, this project is directly aimed at reducing this number.
