Elegance 2015 is a micro gasifier for sustainable cooking developed by the Center for Creativity and Sustainability Study and Consultancy (CCS) and produced by Elegance Company Ltd. for Research & Development, Manufacturing and Services in Vietnam, with its first prototype created in the SPIN-VCL project. The stove is based on the Top Lid-Updraft (TLUD) principle, and has both batch and continuous operation. The stove can use wide range of fuels: wood pellet, crop wastes (rice husk, corn cob, etc.), twigs, branches or woodchips can also be used.
Elegance gasifier which achieves world-class 67% thermal efficiency and extremely low emission (tested by Delft University of Technology in March 2016) can save up to 80% of fuel compared to traditional cooking stoves, allowing continuous fuel feed from crop waste, freeing women from wood gathering and fire maintenance. Elegance pellet gasifier, first created in 2015, is the latest among 11 different versions of biomass gasifier that CCS has been developing for the last 6 years. This gasifier applies the forced draft to both primary and secondary air. As tested by SNV and TUD, Elegance gasifier reaches Tier 4 emission (Global Alliance for Clean Cookstoves standard).
