Rebuilding Haiti must start from the ground up, with agricultural education
Latest technology cookers for conserving fuel wood or biomass and employing manpower to make them.
We need to make sure we have the most fuel efficient stove available so we are trying to incorporate this rocket concept and using biomass such as compacted grass which has 55% of the heat value of charcoal.
Rocket Stove concepts are very clean burning once it reaches enough heat to gasify, they are extremely efficient and save an enormous amount of wood as you only use debris and don't cut down trees. The downfall rocket stoves do not make biochar and does emit CO2 which will not help the green house effect. But it is most reliable in windy conditions, easy to start and can be used for heating ovens.Until vetiver grass fuel production starts, they can use rocket stoves like these produced in China which could also be made in Haiti. They can stop making charcoal immediately and efficiently burn plant waste in these efficient stoves for home cooking.
This institutional sized rocket stove would be great for school lunch programs.
There are 8 videos that tell you how to build this stove below just look for next at end of each segment.
This next video is of a Factory you can get in your community in Haiti to build stoved to exact measurement with premade materials shipped from the USA.
How to build a rocket stove and even insulated bricks!
Below is a stove that is being mass produced in China, it is a great size for families in Haiti.Click here to see about shipping large quantities of these affordable stoves from China to Haiti.
The video below is the best commercial use design, boiling water take an enormous amount of time and fuel, this one uses 65% less of time and fuel. If we can use vetiver fuel pucks it would probably take 45% more time than firewood. It would still be 30% faster than cooking over coal but use no firewood.Click here to see more on this institution rocket stove cooker
There are already very cheap efficient stoves that can be built for cooking and boiling water in Mexico. They are called Patsaris with rocket stove design they bring more air to the fire and circulate the heat next to hot plates to cook on.
The best rocket stove design manual I've found, and the one I've used for the school and household rockets is Design Principles for Wood Burning Cookstoves at:
