Technology to Develop a Smokeless Stove for Sustainable Future of Rural Women and also to Develop a Green Environment

Technology to Develop a Smokeless Stove for Sustainable Future of Rural Women and also to Develop... Nowadays, 40–50% of families worldwide are using traditional stoves for cooking purposes. These stoves are operated by using cow dung, straw and wood where wind pressure is generated manually by using small metallic pipes. To overcome this difficulty, we have designed and developed an innovative stove which epitomizes an initiative toward minimizing air pollution and health-related issues of rural women. In this work, a smokeless stove is presented where primary fuel and secondary fuel are taken for its operation. Wood, straw or cow dung is taken as primary fuel and superheated steam as secondary fuel. In this stove, forced draft is used by the provision of a small fan, which is operated by solar power. So, there is no need for creating forced draft by the cook himself or herself, which makes this innovative stove superior over the traditional stove. Due to the provision of superheated steam, the calorific value of primary fuel increases, and as a result, the burning efficiency as well as the flame temperature increases. It is possible to cook food with very less time due to its higher flame temperature as compared to the LPG stove. The design of this stove is unique, and its maintenance cost is very less. The main objective of this work is to minimize air pollution and provide a better environment for rural women for their cooking purpose with reduction in cost. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png Journal of The Institution of Engineers (India):Series A Springer Journals

Abstract

Nowadays, 40–50% of families worldwide are using traditional stoves for cooking purposes. These stoves are operated by using cow dung, straw and wood where wind pressure is generated manually by using small metallic pipes. To overcome this difficulty, we have designed and developed an innovative stove which epitomizes an initiative toward minimizing air pollution and health-related issues of rural women. In this work, a smokeless stove is presented where primary fuel and secondary fuel are taken for its operation. Wood, straw or cow dung is taken as primary fuel and superheated steam as secondary fuel. In this stove, forced draft is used by the provision of a small fan, which is operated by solar power. So, there is no need for creating forced draft by the cook himself or herself, which makes this innovative stove superior over the traditional stove. Due to the provision of superheated steam, the calorific value of primary fuel increases, and as a result, the burning efficiency as well as the flame temperature increases. It is possible to cook food with very less time due to its higher flame temperature as compared to the LPG stove. The design of this stove is unique, and its maintenance cost is very less. The main objective of this work is to minimize air pollution and provide a better environment for rural women for their cooking purpose with reduction in cost.
