Sustainable Household Cooking in the Philippines The Development
Sustainable Household Cooking in the Philippines The Development of the Mayon Turbo Stove Roger Samson and Claudia Ho Lem REAP-CANADA Box 125, Maison Glenaladale Ste. Anne de Bellevue, QC, H9X 3V9 Tl: (514) 398-7743; Fax: (514) 398-7972 E: [email protected]; W: www.reap-canada.com Why is Sustainable Household Cooking Important Financial : Purchasing LPG typically costs $100/yr, importing fossil fuels is a major drain on developing economies Womens labour: women can spend 60-120 days per year gathering fuelwood Household air quality: women and children are the most vulnerable to respiratory and eye infections from inefficient combustion Landscape ecology: reducing fuelwood use protects watersheds and biodiversity
How are rural people cooking and eating in the Philippines? Traditional diet is centered around rice, fish and vegetables Typically boiling foods in aluminum pots over a biomass stove and grilling fish over charcoal Tend to have multiple cooking devices for convenience and for the various foods they like preparing LPG is preferred as a quick cooking method especially early in the morning LPG (Liquid Petroleum Gas) Most convenient but prohibitively expensive for poor households increases fossil energy imports What Fuels are Rural Households Using? <5,000 5000 - 9,999
Biomass Residue Type of fuel Fuelwood Charcoal Household Fuel Use Trends in the Philippines (1989-1995) 3.5% in woodfuel use/yr 8.5% in charcoal use/yr 9.5% in LPG use/yr 9.4% in kerosene use/yr 7.1% in biomass residues/yr Annual production and estimated recoverability of selected agricultural residues 7000 Yield ('ooo tonnes) 6000
Sugar Cane Trash Annual biomass production Annual recoverable biomass An Improved Biomass Residue Stove needs to: Decrease cooking time Reduce smoke and suspended particulates Be designed with traditional cooking methods in mind Cost effective Minimize fuel consumption Aesthetically pleasing Typical Problems with Conical Rice Hull Stoves Excessive smoke Excessive maintenance (tapping to allow fuel to drop) Excess air causes uncontrolled combustion Fuelbed fires
Too expensive for poor REAP-Canada chose the Lo-Trau stove from Vietnam for further pilot introduction as it was simple and inexpensive. In 1999 we developed the LT-2000 as an improved model of the Lo-Trau. 5000 RHS stoves have been manufactured in the Philippines Poverty Reduction through household energy self-reliance Consumer Assessment of the LT-2000 Rice Hull Stove Time Required to heat up

The Mayon Turbo Stove (MTS) A biomass residue stove optimized to burn rice hull (a loose, bulk fuel) with a high quality of combustion A stove that enables the use of a wide variety of secondary fuels including: peanut shells, coffee shells, corn cobs, crushed coconut shells, and sawdust (mix at a level of 1/3-1/2 rice hull) Major Design Change Improvements of the Mayon Turbo Optimization of the air flow through the use of twin air injectors, & air holes on inner cone for secondary combustion Use of heat shield to prevent fuelbed fires Increase in length of inner cone Decrease in stove size (MTS 6500) and use of materials
