Solution Overview & Benefits

Estufa Finca is a biochar producing cookstove originally designed for coffee growers in Costa Rica. The stoves are designed to reduce the amount of smoke inhaled by the user and to reduce overall carbon emissions.

SeaChar's Estufa Finca cook-stove reinvents fire. It can use a wide range of dry waste organic materials to produce clean heat energy and a beneficial charcoal by-product, which has value as a soil amendment. The Estufa Finca stove is fuel efficient, clean burning and easy to use. It is built from common materials easily found around the world. The stove requires no welding to assemble and the tooling is simple, making it easy to manufacture locally.

History & Development

The Estufa Finca was designed by the SeaChar organization in partnership with the National University of Costa Rica and APORTES. The stoves are manufactured by a women's cooperative in Costa Rica.
