- DOES THE SLAG STOVE USE CHARCOAL OR FIREWOOD?
Yes it uses charcoal and firewood in a specific type too but both in fewer amounts compared to the brazier because of the heat contribution from the treated copper slag. Briquettes are mostly encouraged as an alternative to charcoal.
- WHY COPPER SLAG?

- WHAT ARE THE ENVIRONMENTAL BENEFITS OF THE STOVE ?
By saving amounts of charcoal or firewood in rural areas, we’re reducing on Deforestation and mitigating Climate change. The usage of charcoal briquettes as alternative to charcoal makes it the excellent energy option. The addition of copper slag to the stove helps in managing industrial wastes caused by copper mining.
