Efficient. Affordable. Clean-burning.

Our state-of-the-art stove design is about to start a heating revolution in Portugal.

The Open Day! was a huge success!

So far…

We’ve perfected a woodburner based on the rocket stove concept that is ideal for the Portuguese climate. As a small group of idealists, we’ve dedicated time and our own money to building three prototypes. Our design derives from an open-source effort mainly driven by Peter van den Berg to adapt rocket stove technology for home heating. It delivers a cosy warmth that’s completely different from a normal woodburner, with almost no smoke emissions and at a very reasonable price.

And now?

We have started work on 20 further demonstration models (for delivery before next winter) as a way to gain experience with production methods and fine-tune our processes. This means finding 20 pioneering purchasers who want to be in at the start of this revolution. If you might be interested in one of this year’s models, get in touch using the contact form lower down this page.

The future

We are determined to make a real difference with this stove. We envision hundreds or thousands of homes kept warm using our innovative design, reducing heating costs and keeping carcinogenic wood smoke out of our clean air. We want to help local people create jobs for themselves by building the many stoves needed. That’s why we are working to set up a non-profit business that promotes our design and helps small workgroups get it into production at fair wages.

How Can I Help?

Yes, we need help. A lot of effort has gone into this project so far and much more is needed if this revolution is to gain momentum. The good news is that the very best way to help is to choose one of our batch rocket mass heaters for yourself. Not only will you put a warm heart into your home; you also will help us refine our design. If this sounds interesting, and if you are within 40km of Tábua (central Portugal), begin a conversation with us by filling in the form below. We’ll get back to you with more information.

If you are not ready for a stove yourself, there’s still something you can do. We need funds to spread our idea, but big business does not interest us. We hope to get help through something like crowd funding, asking interested individuals to help, as well as seeking grants from community-focused organisations. So please spread the word. Sare us on Facebook or link to this page. If you really like our idea and feel you or your organisation can help us, write to us using the form below.

All good ☺ when I light it white steam comes out the chimney and then … Nothing. I was outside watching and thought damn it’s gone out … But it hadn’t. But whenever I looked there was no smoke. The house actually feels warm to me … Love it. Very happy 😊 - Erica Deyn
