Smokeless Chula


About 70% of the population in India lives in rural areas. The rural energy scenario is characterized by inadequate, poor and unreliable supply of energy services and large dependence on traditional biomass fuels. Non-commercial energy sources, predominantly fuel wood, chips and dung cakes, contribute around 30% of the total primary energy consumed in the country. Biomass is primarily used for meeting the cooking and heating requirements through traditional Chula (stoves) and furnaces that have very low efficiencies, accounts for only 6% -10%. Hence rural households have to spend about 10% of total household expenditure on energy for cooking and lighting.

This results in increase in demand of firewood that accelerates the felling of wood resulting in deforestation. However, with a little effort, it is possible to increase the thermal efficiency of these Chula considerably. Smoke less Chula (Improved fuel wood stoves) would reduce:

  • Firewood consumption substantially

  • Pressure on CPR/Forest

  • Time and effort on collection of firewood

  • Smoke related health hazard as women are at high risk due to long exposure  to smoke

  • Environmental hazard and thereby make their utility economical & efficient.

To meet the challenges YCDA in collaboration with DF and other NGOs like PAP,WORD &WOSCA started working on Smokeless Chulha project at different districts of Odisha ,namely Boudh, Bolangir and Keonjhar
