The gradual depletion of fossil fuels leads to gaining prominence on biomass fuels in rural and urban sectors. Biomass is a carbon-neutral fuel, and utilization of wood waste ensures sustainability. In today’s scenario, biomass is the most efficient cooking fuel for rural households to attain sustainable development by reducing the usage of firewood. Improved version of biomass cooking stoves can reduce greenhouse emissions through enhancing the combustion process by providing means of sufficient air for combustion. The present work concentrates mainly on the design and development of biomass stoves with automation by using technology-enabled tools for controlling and operating the stove for better performance and also discusses various features of the designed and developed models.
