Winter at Paliomylos, the Old Water Mill.

I met Giorgos last winter in Sunseed. He came from traveling different countries, visiting other communities and learning the permaculture principles. One day he presented us the project he prepared to start a community in Greece where develop sustainability and self-sufficiency. We all felt in love with the project, and many of us promised to visit it.

As such, it is time to hibernate in Greece…

KAÑA!!! biomass gasification cookstove. Construction and use video tutorial.

It is time to build a biomass gasification cookstove. With this tutorial you can do it in an easy and cheap way. You can adapt the instructions to the materials you have, or you can find or acquire. There is no overly critical parameter. If you make modifications and does not work 100%, adjust and modify to achieve better results experimentally.

The tutorial teaches us how to build a biomass gasifier cookstove called Kaña!!!, Version 1.0, and includes:

  • An explanatory text which lists the material necessary to perform it.
  • The needed tools list.
  • Assembly instructions.
  • A video recorded during the biomass gasification course I did in Sunseed which shows all the steps to follow.
  • The instructions for use.
  • A video about the success story of Lucia, who built the Lucificador and got the absolute record of burning time with a powerful flame for 35 minutes using 350 gr. of dry cane.
  • A section with miscellaneous information.
