This cookstove was designed by Ian Hodgson. The cookstove comes in 3 models of different sizes and characteristics. The cookstove burns on any dry waste, and so far we have identified 37 compatible fuels: sawdust, bagasse, cotton waste, maize stover, milled cobs, tobacco scrap, animal dung, soya stalks, peanut shells, hay, grass cuttings, leaves, pine needles, sisal waste, paper waste, and others.
