Converting Efficient Low-Cost Two-Bricks Super Clean Cooking Rocket Stoves (2BSCRS) from Firewood to Charcoal

IMG_9863During user experience sharing session conducted in Mukono District, we realized that some families preferred a model which can easily be converted from firewood to charcoal. The conversion is made easily by inserting a perforated metal plate in between the upper and bottom bricks as per the photos below. Again, you can also insert a developed holed thin clay sheet.

Improved Efficient Low-Cost Two-Bricks Super Clean Cooking Rocket Stoves (2BSCRS)

IMG_9843After critical review of the feedback collected from users of the first developed Efficient Low-Cost Two-Bricks Super Clean Cooking Rocket Stoves (2BSCRS), KIRUCODO and YITEDEV Teams under the leadership of SUN24 have come up with an improved stove.

The improved model has the following:

-Easily installed removable metal pot rests.

-The stove is big enough to the extent that is is now possible to cook a meal of a bigger family.

-Uses less firewood

-Produces very little smoke

-Cooks very fast with very minimal energy loss.

GET LEAD OF ANTIBIOTICS BY MIX MEDICINAL PLANTS AND GRASSES IN DRINKING WATER OF YOUR BIRDS

IMG_20180608_112356IMG_20180608_104519Avoid as much as possible to use antibiotics when raising birds organically. Antibiotics get deposited into the birds’ bodies and when you feed on such a bird, you are likely to develop complications such as cancer, etc.

We always crash leaves of medicinal plants and grasses and mix it in the water we serve our birds. This boosts the immunity of our birds and help them always to stay health and free from disease.

Look at the photo slideshow and see how we do it.

Experience Sharing after one month using Two-Bricks Clean Cook Rocket Stoves

Good3On 15th of April 2018 YITEDEV and KIRUCODO carried out a mass distribution of Two-Bricks Clean Cook Rocket Stoves (2BCCROST) to over 100 women in Bunakijja, Lugazi and Namaliri villages. This project is currently supported by SUN24 of Florida USA.

On 13th May, 2018, we reached out to a total of four respondents who are currently using the Rocket Cooking Stoves and their feedback was given based on usage experience.

The bigger stove (6-inch diameter hole) seemed to be much better than the small (4-inch stove) in efficiency and closely met the needs of women in cooking except for its weakness of majorly the bottom brick which is not strong enough and easily breaks even with simple cooking.

Mass distribution of Clean Cook Rocket Stoves to over 100 women

2Last Sunday the 15th of April we distributed Two-Bricks Clean Cook Rocket Stoves (2BCCROST) to over 100 women of Bunakijja in Mukono District and Namaliri in Buikwe District. The stoves will help to reduce on the amount of firewood used per day in cooking thus reducing cutting down of trees in communities.

On average, a single family in rural Uganda uses between 20-30 firewood of each 2M long. With the introduction of 2BCCROST, a single family is expected to use a maximum of 5 firewood per day of each 2M long.

Since this kind of stove produces much less smoke, women are going to be saved from illnesses associated with inhering wood burning unhealthy smoke.

Again, this is the Team behind this project

(1) Sun24 of Florida USA as information resource, adviser and financer

(2) Youths In Technology and Development Uganda (YITEDEV) as Coordinating and Technical implementing Team

(3) Kikandwa Rural Communities Development Organization (KIRUCODO) as Coordinating and Technical Implementing Team

Introduction:

Wood fuel is a broad term covering both the direct use of wood in cooking and heating, the use of charcoal (both for households and for industrial uses) and also recovered wastes in wood-using industries. While all are important in particular situations in developing countries, the use of wood and charcoal in heating and cooking predominate and are the main energy sources for more than two billion people (Nogueira, et al. 1998; Mather 1990; WEC 1999).
