It is not surprising to learn, as the population of the world expands at an ever-increasing rate, that the demand for clean and affordable energy is placing unreasonable expectations on our fragile ecosystem. Alexis Belonio has accomplished the seemingly impossible and developed a clean burning cooking stove and continuous-flow industrial flow burner. Belonio’s cooking stove uses a finely tuned gasification process that produces a clean-burning fuel. The Rice Husk Gasifier’s simple and elegant design allows rural communities to build the stove themselves, sourced from accessible resources and local talent, while potentially saving two million metric tons of energy loss each year.
