The Himalayan Rocket Stove Project

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 redesign of the humble wood combustion heater, so that with less than half the usual amount of wood you would have ample clean consistent heat in your home.

Imagine No More! We have developed clean burning, high efficiency wood combustion heaters in 3 models that suit any size home for heating and cooking.

Wood Combustion Stoves

For Heating and Cooking

In the Himalayas and Beyond!

Himalayan Rocket Stove is committed to improving Heating and Cooking Solutions with a view to Reducing Deforestation, Pollution and Drudgery. As we develop our range of options, we aim to expand our reach to include low income communities wherever possible.

How does it work?

Rocket Stove design is based on a dual combustion process where wood gas and smoke is drawn into a secondary combustion chamber which burns the smoke and releases an abundance of additional heat.

It’s a Rocket Stove, not Rocket Science!

The Himalayan Rocket Stove Project has developed a highly efficient wood burning stove tailored to the Himalayan context and which is now in production and ready for distribution throughout northern India.

These stoves address three key issues facing the people and environment of the Himalayas, namely deforestation, women’s health and air pollution.
