Novotera

Novotera is helping low-income families in Vietnam gain access to clean cookstoves by building a distribution network around the popular Rua cookstove. The Rua is designed to work with rice husks, minimizing deforestation and the purchase of fuel, while also producing biochar. Working with local NGOs, manufacturers, a mobile salesforce and merchants, the pilot will improve the health and living conditions of 250 households and set the stage for an infrastructure capable of reaching 25,000 in 2 years.
