Smokeless stove introduced

By Staff Reporter

GUWAHATI, May 16 � Aimed at curtailing the deadly effects of open-fire stoves widely used across the rural landscape, an eco-friendly smokeless stove fuelled by biomass pellets that convert into heat was introduced in the city recently.

Demonstrating the functioning of the stove, office-bearers of the D&S Group, which is marketing and distributing the stove, said the environment-friendly stove offers an alternative to traditional stoves � as it is also more efficient and uses local, biodegradable materials.

The pellet fuels are made of compressed organic matter or biomass, including industrial waste and co-products, food waste, agricultural residues, energy crops and virgin lumber.

The stove is claimed to be cost-effective compared to domestic LPG gas, with pellets costing Rs 22 per kg. Once the pellet plant comes up near Guwahati, the cost of the pellets would be Rs 8 per kg as it is in Gujarat where they are produced and now transported to Assam.

The innovative technology does not have problems such as leakage, pipe cutting, susceptibility to explosion, and requires zero maintenance.
