Project Title: Protecting local environment and promoting sustainable livelihoods for farmers in Cu Khoi guava cultivation area through the application of advance high-efficiency biomass gasifiers and the Product-Service System.

Time: July 2016 to June 2017

Budget: 25,000 USD

Partners: Center for Creativity and Sustainability Study and Consultancy (CCS);  Viet Lien Co., Ltd.; Cu Khoi Agriculture Cooperative; and Long Bien District Government.

Location: Cu Khoi village, Long Bien District, Ha Noi.

Objectives: Showcase the feasibility and up-scalability of adopting biomass gasification cookstoves and changing waste disposal activities of guava farmers in Cu Khoi.

Main activities:

  1. To study and assess the cooking needs and biomass from guava that can be converted into fuel using biomass gasification technology.
  2. Introductory seminar on the program in Cu Khoi.
  3. Set up a service system to treat fuel from guava trees for gasifier.
  4. Provide gasifier for some pilot households in the area
  5. Popularize the results, promote the use of gasification stoves in the area
