Construction

Materials: Metal
Construction method: The stove has stackable units (including a modified “rocket stove”) in a heat column over a gasifier unit with an airpipe, with smaller holes for entrance of secondary air, with pre-heated secondary air, with a tapered chimney, and with independent structural components for the stove body. The Juntos gasifier chamber is removable and, therefore, can
be emptied to save the resultant charcoal, re-loaded with biomass, re-lighted, and re-inserted into the heat column.
Design improvements are continuing.
