With wood gas produced by pyrolysis in the "GREEN FIRE" : 50% biomass saved !

The Green Fire: 

- In May 2015 HYDRANTMAN Project did a thorough study of the relationship between Water - Forest - Fire.

- Jean Garrigues our founder, have created an ecological stove, inspired by the gasifier, to cook food with compressed biomass in the form of pellets and small wood.

- From Switzerland, we have developed the prototypes of this stove.

- The tests were carried out in Switzerland and Nepal with many adjustments. We recorded a biomass saving of 50%

- Several GREEN FIRE stoves are currently operating in Nepalese families living in the Manaslu Mountain Range 8163m in Gorkha District.
