Biomass fuels provided about 4 percent of the energy used in the United States in 2010. Of this, about 46 percent was from wood and wood-derived biomass, 43 percent was from biofuels (mainly ethanol), and about 11 percent was from municipal waste. Researchers are trying to develop ways to burn more biomass and fewer fossil fuels. Using biomass for energy cuts back on waste and greenhouse gas emissions.

Biomass offers other significant environmental and consumer benefits, including improving forest health, protecting air quality, and offering the most dependable renewable energy source.


TERI felt the need to utilize the forced draft (using fan to inject air into the combustion chamber) micro-gasification technology to develop an improved biomass cookstove. After two years of intensive research, field-testing and customization we have developed a single port metal stove that can cater to cooking requirements of a family of up to 7 members. Fuel wood, agriculture residue and cattle dung cake can be used as fuel for this stove. The power charger has dual charging mode (both AC/ grid power supply and solar power supply) to cater to households in unelectrified areas. Quality components have been used to make the stove performance long lasting. Stainless Steel has been used to fabricate the stove body and 11.1 V, 2.2 Ah Lithium Cobalt Oxide batteries has been used to power the fan.
