Micro-gasification: Cooking with gas from dry biomass (GIZ HERA)

We are pleased to announce and make available the second, revised addition of the GIZ HERA manual, “Micro-gasification: Cooking with gas from dry biomass.” Written by Christa Roth and originally released in 2011, this manual provides an introduction to concepts and applications of wood-gas burning technologies for cooking.

The 2014 revised edition reflects the current state of the art in the growing topic of generating cooking energy by using dry biomass for gasification. It includes the technical background, together with project examples, as well as more recent developments in gasifier stove technologies. The publication concludes with a look into biochar, the use of charcoal for soil fertility and carbon capture.
