Thakuri, S. and Zahnd, A. (2006) High altitude smokeless metal stove: A research, development and implementation project through the Kathmandu University. In: National conference on Renewable Energy Technology (RETRUD-06), 12 - 14 October, Kathmandu, Nepal
This paper aims to highlight the importance and need of a Smokeless Metal Stove (SMS) for high altitude rural communities, in order to improve their health condition through better indoor air conditions, and to help in active ways to slow down the fast increasing, wide spread deforestation. It brings close through facts and pictures the living conditions and way of life of people who suffer under open indoor fire places, as well as the improved living conditions and benefits people themselves have identified through the use of a smokeless metal stove in their home. Experiences from actual “Jumla Design” stove installations in the villages in Humla, as well as the latest KU laboratory data and results of the new designed secondary combustion stove prototypes are discussed and presented through pictures, data and graphs.
