Innovator observed that in his region the paddy husk used to be considered useless and huge amounts of paddy husk is discarded as agricultural waste, since paddy husk is available in plenty but was not used effectively as fuel in the conventional wood stoves. He modified the old stove developed for wood dust so as to use paddy husk as fuel.
It is a portable stove of specific design for using paddy husk as an effective fuel. Paddy husk (around one kg) is spread completely between the outer frustum and cylinder. A fire is ignited with the help of some kerosene oil to the fuel through inner frustum. In few minutes, a good smokeless flame of fire is obtained.
