About This Site

This site describes a subset of biomass cooking stoves for developing countries, and is intended as a resource for those working in the field. It tries to organize key existing online materials, as well as highlight new contributions that will hopefully be stimulated by a continuing discussion of new designs and approaches that seek to focus on developing open design ideas that can be deployed in any country, quickly.

Other resources that may be of interest include my more general technical sites:

and the always more extensive "master site" of stovers worldwide called Biomass Cooking Stoves:

The dates on these posts are presently bogus, just because I wanted a site where the newest posts are last - so that all the intro material is initially up front; this may change in the future.
