Winter is Coming!

Are you ready to halve your wood consumption this winter?

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.

Clean Burning High Efficiency

Wood Combustion Stoves

For Heating and Cooking

In the Himalayas and Beyond!

Currently targeting the Himalayan regions of India, Nepal and Bhutan with a view to scaling out to global markets over the coming years.

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.

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.

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.
