The Peko Pe stove offers an alternative to charcoal use, helping to reduce deforestation. This is a biomass multi-fuel gasifier system, developed by Norwegian Paal Wendelbo. Fuel for the Peko Pe stove can be twigs, sticks, reed, bagasse, husks amongst other possibilities. The fuel just has to be dry and cut into finger size pieces.
Project OSCAR runs workshops on the Peko Pe stove, in co-operation with ZYMCOS (Zambia Youth Multipurpose Cooperative Society) and AYE (Allied Youth Entrepreneurs) in Lusaka.
