Find suppliers of charcoal and coal briquettes which do not produce a flame or smoke like charcoal, it lasts longer than charcoal braziers, and it is generally clean; it is like a stove cooker.

Traditional energy sources, especially wood fuel, cause deforestation and serious ecological and environmental degradation in the country.
