About this project

Standard wood stoves destroy forests and lungs. Our gasifier from Ethiopia produces charcoal while cooking, which can be turned into bio-char fertiliser and sold. The local technology uses clay and old oil cans. Mini-franchises build, sell, and repair ovens and market fertiliser for soil improvement. With your donation, we will register the Joint Venture Impacc Stoves Limited in Ethiopia and start setting up workshops catering to 2,000-5,000 households. One workshop costs 10,000€ in up-front investment, after which it can operate independently.
