Globally, 500 million households prepare their meals with paraffin or on open fires using wood or charcoal. This produces high levels of indoor air pollution, resulting in sickness, and ultimately causing over 4 million premature deaths each year.
Paraffin fires are also a leading cause of shack fires in South Africa, making them incredibly dangerous to families and communities. In South Africa alone, there are over 5,000 informal settlement fires per annum.
Also, buying fuel consumes a large portion of the average household income, making it difficult for people to save money to improve their lives.
RWPA set out to make clean, affordable cooking accessible to everyone.
To achieve this, we present our Green Cooking Stove: an affordable cookstove specifically designed to burn cheap, locally produced biomass fuel such as wood pellets in a very clean and efficient way. When using RWPA’s Cook Stove, the amount of smoke and other harmful emissions easily complies with the air quality guidelines stated by the WHO.
RWPA’s Specified Cook Stove has been tested by the Colorado State University Engines and Energy Conversion Laboratory. We are very proud to say it has achieved Tier 4 Performance on Efficiency/Fuel Use, Emissions and Indoor Emissions.
RWPA’s Cooking Stove is a forced air gasifier stove. By gasifying wood instead of burning it directly (like on an open fire) the extracted gasses burn as a nice and clean flame.
The stove has been designed and engineered from the ground up, focusing on making it user friendly, durable and affordable.
With two removable burning chambers RWPA’s cooking stove can manage all cooking practices. The big chamber produces a high power flame for cooking with large pots while the small chamber is specially designed for low power simmering. The integrated fan can be powered by a built-in battery pack and/or a separate solar panel for operation in off-grid areas.
