DESCRIPTION OF PRODUCTS AND SERVICES

The ECOCOMAL company designs, manufactures and sells ecological stoves that are especially designed for cooking with firewood and properly using this resource. The organic eco stove griddle was developed to solve the problem of the misuse of wood over time in Guatemalan families and the negative impact it has had on the health of the population and the environmentaldeterioration that has been caused by this traditional practice. This technology is aimed at minimizing the consumption of firewood; we did this through a system of complete combustion efficiency, which reduces wood consumption by 60% when being compared to an open fire or a wood-burning grill.

The ECOCOMAL company designs, manufactures and sells ecological stoves that are especially designed for cooking with firewood and properly using this resource. The organic eco stove griddle was developed to solve the problem of the misuse of wood over time in Guatemalan families and the negative impact it has had on the health of the population and the environmentaldeterioration that has been caused by this traditional practice. This technology is aimed at minimizing the consumption of firewood; we did this through a system of complete combustion efficiency, which reduces wood consumption by 60% when being compared to an open fire or a wood-burning grill.

We have designed a system of complete combustion within the part of the stove termed as a combustion chamber, there are various presentations, designs and sizes that users can choose from as they consider appropriate to their needs and possibilities of purchase.

 

RESEARCH AND/OR DEVELOPMENT OF PRODUCT

The design of the combustion chamber has been proven through laboratory tests and field trials to reduce the use of wood by 60%. The money that was being used to buy firewood is now a savings for the household. Also now those 60% of trees and forests that were to be felled and used as firewood are now being preserved.

In Guatemala 64% of the population uses wood as an energy source. A family of six consumes a volume of 1.2 cubic meters, equivalent to a large tree per month, which corresponds to 13 cubic meters per year. if we consider that in the country more than 2 million households are directly dependent on firewood for cooking and heating their homes, the annual wood consumption in the country is more than 27 million cubic meters per year, which comes mostly from the natural forests.

Given this demand for firewood it is necessary to develop alternatives to ensure that people can meet their energy needs while promoting sustainable development based on the proper use of natural resources, avoiding deforestation and helping to adapt and mitigate the climate change. To be able to meet this high consumption of firewood, the best alternative is to promote energy forests with plantations of fast growing native species such as: Cushing, paterno, matilisguate, madrecacao, ujushte, leucaena, aripin and others depending on the region of the country; there are also tree speciesoriginating from other countries that are prized for their wood and that grow very fast such as eucalyptus and gravileas. However ECOCOMAL believes that not only should we generate more forest, but also know how to use their resources efficiently. That is why we design, manufacture and sell the appropriate technology in the proper use of wood for the generation of energy and for cooking. The design of the combustion chamber has been proven through laboratory tests and field trials to reduce the use of wood by 60%. Now that money that families were using to buy firewood isa savings. Also now those 60% of trees and forests that were to be felled and used as firewood are now being preserved.
