The Agricultural waste Gasifier stove is a device for domestic cooking utilizing agricultural waste as a fuel. The stove is designed to burn agricultural waste using limited amount of air for combustion to produce a luminous blue flame, which is almost similar to that of the LPG stove. The Agricultural waste Gasifier stove follows the principle of producing combustible gases, primarily carbon monoxide, from agricultural waste by burning it with limited amount of air. The wastes are burned just enough to convert the fuel into char and allow the oxygen in the air and other generated gases during the process to react with the carbon in the char at a higher temperature to produce combustible carbon monoxide(CO), hydrogen(H2), and methane(CH4). Other gases, like carbon dioxide (CO2) and water vapor (H2O) which are not combustible, are also produced during gasification. By controlling the air supply with a small fan, the amount of air necessary to gasify Agricultural waste is achieved. The problem on forest denudation facing the country combined with the need for fuel for cooking requirement, there is a need for us to look for alternative biomass fuel, other than wood like Rice husk, Bagasse, Wheat husk, Grass, Ground Nut husk etc, that can be used for cooking. Keywords- Gasifier, Agricultural Waste, LPG, Producer gas.
