I have been so much busy doing tons of animation for a game when I went to the kitchen to get hot water in the kettle for a cup of coffee. My mother use the clay wood stove to boil the water and I do notice the huge amount of smoke it produces. I then realized that there may be advancements in technology that may suffice that problem. Friendly Google leads me to a fascinating result of a stove using gasified wood, coal and rice husk for fuel, which eventually impresses me.
The rice husk gasifier stove is invented by no other than by the Filipino inventor Mr. Alex Belonio, who I think perfected a rice husk stove that produces blue flame. The process of gasification for cooking purposes uses the volatile gases produced by burning wood with regulated air, thus avoiding direct combustion and allowing the wood or rice husk to gasify. The volatile gases is then directed to a gas wick where a complete combustion takes place.These invention of Mr. Belonio is indeed needed nowadays especially with the price hike of LPG. Wood coal and rice husk is relatively cheaper than marketed fuels derived from oil and this invention will be particularly helpful to manage our tight budget.
