Notes: Sampada is a natural draft gasifier which produces charcoal as a bye product. For every kg of wood burned, it is possible to get cooking energy for about 30 min with about 200 gm of charcoal left behind. The charcoal can be used as fuel in a charcoal burning stove or can also be used as biochar for addition to the soil for carbon sequestration and soil fertility improvement.
