A Salvadoran inventor
SAN SALVADOR, El Salvador — In a makeshift laboratory equipped with little more than a battered chair and a cheap kitchen scale, inventor Rene Nunez Suarez displays the contraption that has become his life's obsession.
It's a stainless-steel cooker that uses about 95 percent less fuel than conventional wood stoves, with minimal pollution. It would seem a can't-miss technology in a country where millions still cook with wood and most forests have been destroyed.
The device has garnered Nunez a prestigious environmental prize. It has earned him a U.S. patent. And it has won fans among some Salvadoran peasants who no longer spend a good chunk of their days hunting for firewood and then inhaling cooking smoke.It has also wrecked Nunez's marriage, alienated two of his three children and swallowed his life savings.

as eeverybody knows, the salvadorean government doesn't have in his agenda as an important point the poor people.
however congratulations rene for that wonderful invent that is changing and developing the salvadorean life-conditions.
P.S If you post here can you at least give yourself a nickname please !!!!
Peace my brothers and sisters
cannot wait to see this stove
however I will be making and demonstrating a composting toilet the size and basically same materials as a pila[concrete thingy used to wash dishes,clothes, babies, etc.-for all you 'gringoes']
this device has current usage in India, [as do larger community based biogassers] with this you can cook off the low pressure metahne released[it dioes take some monthly maintainence. which is difficult to impliment, but cvan be done, best with some written instructions/manual]
