Indonesians light up with biomass stove

New invention uses a fifth of wood and other natural materials normally consumed to cook a meal.

    Thousands of Indonesians are making their own contribution in the fight against climate change by cooking with a type of stove that does not use kerosene or gas.

    The inventor says the biomass stove, being cheap and easy to use, it can utilise bio waste like nutshells dramatically reducing the imprint on the environment.

    With further propagation, it is hoped, the appliance will help reduce the country's emission of greenhouse gases - among the highest in the world.
