<p>ABSTRACT: As global fossil energy resources become constrained, bioenergy is emerging as a major potential<br />
resource to supply the energy services currently provided by these fossil fuels. Africa and Latin America have, in<br />
theory, very large areas of land resources ‘available’ for bioenergy production. However, the production of biomass<br />
for energy on the scales necessary to supply significant shares of national and global energy provision, will result in<br />
very substantial impacts (positive and negative) on the ecosystems and cultures of these target regions. The protection<br />
of biodiversity, rural livelihoods and management of scarce water resources are critical considerations in any analysis<br />
of the potential for sustainable bioenergy provision.<br />
The objective of this Competence Platform on Energy Crop and Agroforestry Systems - Africa (COMPETE<sup class="glossary-indicator" title="Competence Platform on Energy Crop and Agroforestry Systems for Arid and Semi-arid Ecosystems- Africa"><a href="/en/taxonomy/term/1366" title="Competence Platform on Energy Crop and Agroforestry Systems for Arid and Semi-arid Ecosystems- Africa" class="glossary-indicator">i</a></sup>) is to<br />
stimulate sustainable bioenergy implementation in Africa. COMPETE<sup class="glossary-indicator" title="Competence Platform on Energy Crop and Agroforestry Systems for Arid and Semi-arid Ecosystems- Africa"><a href="/en/taxonomy/term/1366" title="Competence Platform on Energy Crop and Agroforestry Systems for Arid and Semi-arid Ecosystems- Africa" class="glossary-indicator">i</a></sup> will establish a platform for policy dialogue<br />
and capacity building in the major multi- and bi-lateral funding organisations and key stakeholders throughout the<br />
bioenergy provision and supply chains.</p>

<p>BACKGROUND<br />
•Uganda Stove Manufacturers Ltd (UGASTOVE) was until recently called UCODEA, short for Urban Community Development Agencies.<br />
•It is a progressive improved stove business based in Kampala, Uganda, producing and selling both household and institutional stoves<br />
•Name was changed to ease recognition and distinction as we look forward to branding/ patenting.</p>
<p>The stove project benefited from a US EPA grant in 2004-2006, which funded the construction of production infrastructure, perfection of stove design,<br />
IAP monitoring, market research, part of the KPT costs, and design of business development processes to support the commercialization of the product.<br />
Project won an award for the effort in stove design and improvement at the 3rd Biennial PCIA<sup class="glossary-indicator" title="Partnership for Clean Indoor air"><a href="/en/taxonomy/term/119" title="Partnership for Clean Indoor air" class="glossary-indicator">i</a></sup> Workshop in Bangalore, India, March 2007.</p>
<p>Successful IAP monitoring was done according to CEIHD monitoring protocols (Preliminary data shows that UGASTOVE’swood burning stove reduces CO<sup class="glossary-indicator" title="Carbon Monoxide"><a href="/en/taxonomy/term/325" title="Carbon Monoxide" class="glossary-indicator">i</a></sup> by 54% and PM<sup class="glossary-indicator" title="Particulate Matter"><a href="/en/taxonomy/term/323" title="Particulate Matter" class="glossary-indicator">i</a></sup> 2.5by 49%)</p>
<p>KPT successfully done in 2006, follow up in 2007 (Field tests show that the stoves reduce the consumption of fuel by 38-58% compared to traditional stoves).</p>
<p>Lab GHG<sup class="glossary-indicator" title="Greenhouse Gas"><a href="/en/taxonomy/term/334" title="Greenhouse Gas" class="glossary-indicator">i</a></sup> emissions tests carried out at UCB, enabled the drafting of the PDD based on the scientific data gathered during the said surveys.</p>
<p>Carbon credit program was launched in February 2005 at UC Berkeley, with the intention of registering the credits on the Gold Standard for VER.</p>
<p>In March 2007, the first consultative meeting was held in Kampala as required for the Gold Standard projects</p>
<p>In partnership with CEIHD, a monitoring plan was drafted and forwarded for approval on the Gold Standard.</p>

<p>This prototype was to check the hole of the briquette and how gasification can do a nice job. As said, starting the fire with few small sticks and then after preheating the chamber, briquettes ignite by themselves and burn throughly. You can help flames with having a stick in the hole while burning. I really liked how the briquette retained its shape after it burned out, so you could still push the next one it without preventing the draft..</p>
<p>But the briquette burned with the surface lit from the combustion chamber, as Larry predicted. You could literally walk away of the stove with the consistent flame going on all the time (I guess the briquettes were good quality :)  The air inflow was only through the hole of the briquette.</p>
<p>Funny was, that even when one briquette burned out, the next one ignited and the airflow continued through the hole of the first briquette.</p>

The Multifuel Combustion System (MFCS) is a flexible system designed for bioenergy household and institutional cooking. It is based on one energy unit (the Peko Pe) which single or multiple will cower all needs of energy for inside and outside cooking. The energy unit has to be seen as a “battery” loaded with energy, and when empty, replaced with a new loaded until the food is ready. Two units of 3 litres will cover the needs of a family, ½ full with fuel for coffee or tea, a bit more for porridge and 1 ½ for the whole meal.  For boiling beans, empty the unit and place the pot on the glowing char. A simple handle to hold the pot for mingling the enchima will be a good help. (See the drawing). For institutional cooking more  10litre units will be the best  3 Units will boil 60 litres within 50 minutes and continue boiling 2 more hours on 6kg of chopped wood-sticks. The system can be used for heating air or water, frying, cooking and baking bread, even smoking fish. </p>
<p>The MFCS will be faced the same problems as other type of new stoves and has to be trained, it is boiling faster and saving fuel (saving 2/3), burning with no smoke and little soot (depending a bit on type of fuel)<br />
The system has been working for about 15 years and plans or more information is available by <a href="mailto:paaw@online.no">paaw@online.no</a> </p>
<p>Attached you will find some pictures of a simple 3litre teststove I use to test types of biofuel.<br />

Africa and Latin America have, in<br /> theory, very large areas of land resources ‘available’ for bioenergy production. However, the production of biomass<br /> for energy on the scales necessary to supply significant shares of national and global energy provision, will result in<br /> very substantial impacts (positive and negative) on the ecosystems and cultures of these target regions.

prototype was to check the hole of the briquette and how gasification can do a nice job. As said, starting the fire with few small sticks and then after preheating the chamber, briquettes ignite by themselves and burn throughly. You can help flames with having a stick in the hole while burning. I really liked how the briquette retained its shape after it burned out, so you could still push the next one it without preventing the draft..</p> <p>But the briquette burned with the surface lit from the combustion chamber, as Larry predicted. You could literally walk away of the stove with the consistent flame going on all the time (I guess the briquettes were good quality :) The air inflow was only through the hole of the briquette.</p> <p>Funny was, that even when one briquette burned out, the next one ignited and the airflow continued through the hole of the first briquette.</p> <p>(Click image to enlarge in Gallery)</p> <p><a href="http://www.bioenergylists.org/en/index.php?q=gallery&amp;g2_itemId=2593"><img src="http://www.bioenergylists.org/gallery2/main.php?g2_view=core.DownloadItem&amp;g2_itemId=2595&amp;g2_serialNumber=2" width="150" height="150" alt="Oblak1.jpg" title="Oblak1.jpg" /></a><br /> <a href="http://www.bioenergylists.org/en/index.php?q=gallery&amp;g2_itemId=2597"><img src="http://www.bioenergylists.org/gallery2/main.php?g2_view=core.DownloadItem&amp;g2_itemId=2599&amp;g2_serialNumber=2" width="150" height="150" alt="Oblak2.jpg" title="Oblak2.jpg" /></a><br /> <a href="http://www.bioenergylists.org/en/index.php?q=gallery&amp;g2_itemId=2600"><img src="http://www.bioenergylists.org/gallery2/main.php?g2_view=core.DownloadItem&amp;g2_itemId=2602&amp;g2_serialNumber=2" width="150" height="150" alt="Oblak3.jpg" title="Oblak3.jpg" /></a><br /> <a href="http://www.bioenergylists.org/en/index.php?q=gallery&amp;g2_itemId=2603"><img src="http://www.bioenergylists.org/gallery2/main.php?g2_view=core.DownloadItem&amp;g2_itemId=2605&amp;g2_serialNumber=2" width="150" height="150" alt="Oblak4.jpg" title="Oblak4.jpg" /></a><br /> <a href="http://www.bioenergylists.org/en/index.php?q=gallery&amp;g2_itemId=2606"><img src="http://www.bioenergylists.org/gallery2/main.php?g2_view=core.DownloadItem&amp;g2_itemId=2608&amp;g2_serialNumber=2" width="150" height="150" alt="Oblak5.jpg" title="Oblak5.jpg" /></a><br /> <a href="http://www.bioenergylists.org/en/index.php?q=gallery&amp;g2_itemId=2609"><img src="http://www.bioenergylists.org/gallery2/main.php?g2_view=core.DownloadItem&amp;g2_itemId=2611&amp;g2_serialNumber=2" width="150" height="150" alt="Oblak6.jpg" title="Oblak6.jpg" /></a></p> <p><a href="http://www.bioenergylists.org/en/oblakbriquettetests">read more</a></p>" ["category"]=> string(5) "Oblak" ["comments"]=> string(61) "http://www.bioenergylists.org/en/oblakbriquettetests#comments" ["guid"]=> string(37) "2155 at http://www.bioenergylists.org" ["pubDate"]=> string(31) "Sun, 31 Aug 2008 18:46:50 +0000" } [3]=> array(7) { ["title"]=> string(30) "Mdula: A DIY Mud Cooking Stove" ["link"]=> string(47) "http://www.bioenergylists.org/en/oblakmdulablog" ["description"]=> string(1208) "<p><a href="http://mdulastove.wordpress.com/">Mdula: A DIY Mud Cooking Stove</a><br /> Rok Oblak, August 2008</p> <p><span class="block"><a href="/en/node/2154"><img src="http://www.bioenergylists.org/files/images/mduladiy.img_assist_custom.jpg" alt="Mdula" title="Mdula" class="image image-img_assist_custom" width="401" height="301" /></a><span class="caption" style="width: 399px;"><strong>Mdula</strong></span></span></p> <p>Mdula or Modular Mbaula (stove) is a design project aiming to simplify the construction of an efficient household mud cooking stove for extreme rural areas.

It is based on one energy unit (the Peko Pe) which single or multiple will cower all needs of energy for inside and outside cooking. The energy unit has to be seen as a “battery” loaded with energy, and when empty, replaced with a new loaded until the food is ready. Two units of 3 litres will cover the needs of a family, ½ full with fuel for coffee or tea, a bit more for porridge and 1 ½ for the whole meal. For boiling beans, empty the unit and place the pot on the glowing char. A simple handle to hold the pot for mingling the enchima will be a good help. (See the drawing). For institutional cooking more 10litre units will be the best 3 Units will boil 60 litres within 50 minutes and continue boiling 2 more hours on 6kg of chopped wood-sticks.

Africa and Latin America have, in<br /> theory, very large areas of land resources ‘available’ for bioenergy production. However, the production of biomass<br /> for energy on the scales necessary to supply significant shares of national and global energy provision, will result in<br /> very substantial impacts (positive and negative) on the ecosystems and cultures of these target regions. The protection<br /> of biodiversity, rural livelihoods and management of scarce water resources are critical considerations in any analysis<br /> of the potential for sustainable bioenergy provision.<br /> The objective of this Competence Platform on Energy Crop and Agroforestry Systems - Africa (COMPETE<sup class="glossary-indicator" title="Competence Platform on Energy Crop and Agroforestry Systems for Arid and Semi-arid Ecosystems- Africa"><a href="/en/taxonomy/term/1366" title="Competence Platform on Energy Crop and Agroforestry Systems for Arid and Semi-arid Ecosystems- Africa" class="glossary-indicator">i</a></sup>) is to<br /> stimulate sustainable bioenergy implementation in Africa.

nice job. As said, starting the fire with few small sticks and then after preheating the chamber, briquettes ignite by themselves and burn throughly. You can help flames with having a stick in the hole while burning. I really liked how the briquette retained its shape after it burned out, so you could still push the next one it without preventing the draft..</p> <p>But the briquette burned with the surface lit from the combustion chamber, as Larry predicted. You could literally walk away of the stove with the consistent flame going on all the time (I guess the briquettes were good quality :) The air inflow was only through the hole of the briquette.</p> <p>Funny was, that even when one briquette burned out, the next one ignited and the airflow continued through the hole of the first briquette.</p> <p>(Click image to enlarge in Gallery)</p> <p><a href="http://www.bioenergylists.org/en/index.php?q=gallery&amp;g2_itemId=2593"><img src="http://www.bioenergylists.org/gallery2/main.php?g2_view=core.DownloadItem&amp;g2_itemId=2595&amp;g2_serialNumber=2" width="150" height="150" alt="Oblak1.jpg" title="Oblak1.jpg" /></a><br /> <a href="http://www.bioenergylists.org/en/index.php?q=gallery&amp;g2_itemId=2597"><img src="http://www.bioenergylists.org/gallery2/main.php?g2_view=core.DownloadItem&amp;g2_itemId=2599&amp;g2_serialNumber=2" width="150" height="150" alt="Oblak2.jpg" title="Oblak2.jpg" /></a><br /> <a href="http://www.bioenergylists.org/en/index.php?q=gallery&amp;g2_itemId=2600"><img src="http://www.bioenergylists.org/gallery2/main.php?g2_view=core.DownloadItem&amp;g2_itemId=2602&amp;g2_serialNumber=2" width="150" height="150" alt="Oblak3.jpg" title="Oblak3.jpg" /></a><br /> <a href="http://www.bioenergylists.org/en/index.php?q=gallery&amp;g2_itemId=2603"><img src="http://www.bioenergylists.org/gallery2/main.php?g2_view=core.DownloadItem&amp;g2_itemId=2605&amp;g2_serialNumber=2" width="150" height="150" alt="Oblak4.jpg" title="Oblak4.jpg" /></a><br /> <a href="http://www.bioenergylists.org/en/index.php?q=gallery&amp;g2_itemId=2606"><img src="http://www.bioenergylists.org/gallery2/main.php?g2_view=core.DownloadItem&amp;g2_itemId=2608&amp;g2_serialNumber=2" width="150" height="150" alt="Oblak5.jpg" title="Oblak5.jpg" /></a><br /> <a href="http://www.bioenergylists.org/en/index.php?q=gallery&amp;g2_itemId=2609"><img src="http://www.bioenergylists.org/gallery2/main.php?g2_view=core.DownloadItem&amp;g2_itemId=2611&amp;g2_serialNumber=2" width="150" height="150" alt="Oblak6.jpg" title="Oblak6.jpg" /></a></p> <p><a href="http://www.bioenergylists.org/en/oblakbriquettetests">read more</a></p> [category] => Oblak [comments] => http://www.bioenergylists.org/en/oblakbriquettetests#comments [guid] => 2155 at http://www.bioenergylists.org [pubDate] => Sun, 31 Aug 2008 18:46:50 +0000 ) [3] => Array ( [title] => Mdula: A DIY Mud Cooking Stove [link] => http://www.bioenergylists.org/en/oblakmdulablog [description] => <p><a href="http://mdulastove.wordpress.com/">Mdula: A DIY Mud Cooking Stove</a><br /> Rok Oblak, August 2008</p> <p><span class="block"><a href="/en/node/2154"><img src="http://www.bioenergylists.org/files/images/mduladiy.img_assist_custom.jpg" alt="Mdula" title="Mdula" class="image image-img_assist_custom" width="401" height="301" /></a><span class="caption" style="width: 399px;"><strong>Mdula</strong></span></span></p> <p>Mdula or Modular Mbaula (stove) is a design project aiming to simplify the construction of an efficient household mud cooking stove for extreme rural areas.

It is based on one energy unit (the Peko Pe) which single or multiple will cower all needs of energy for inside and outside cooking. The energy unit has to be seen as a “battery” loaded with energy, and when empty, replaced with a new loaded until the food is ready. Two units of 3 litres will cover the needs of a family, ½ full with fuel for coffee or tea, a bit more for porridge and 1 ½ for the whole meal. For boiling beans, empty the unit and place the pot on the glowing char. A simple handle to hold the pot for mingling the enchima will be a good help. (See the drawing). For institutional cooking more 10litre units will be the best 3 Units will boil 60 litres within 50 minutes and continue boiling 2 more hours on 6kg of chopped wood-sticks.
