Oorja

"A 2006 report prepared by an independent agency concludes that the stove reduces carbon monoxide by 71 percent and lessens suspended particulate matter by 34 percent. Cooking takes less time. Biomass use would thus fall from 1.5 to 2 tons per family per year to 0.4 to 0.6 tons per family per year"


This is no high tech Gadget i am talking about. This is an innovation that came out to cater to the needs of the India that does not rely on gas and electricity, but wood.

A cooking stove project called oorja is very slowly creating a revolution in rural India. Where conventional stove manufacturers provide the consumer a device and not a solution, oorja has a completely different take on selling stoves as a service. They supply cooking pellets to fuel the stove too. The fuel pellets, burning more efficiently than wood, reduces biomass consumption, cooking time and cuts carbon monoxide emissions, while giving employment to more than 2700 rural Indians.
