Dean Still demonstrates how to make an Aprovecho Rocket Lorena Refugee Stove from a StoveTec combustion chamber and Lorena (a mixture of clay and sand) that performs like a StoveTec One Door Stove. Dean is CEO of Aprovecho Research Center in Cottage Grove, Oregon. Aprovecho designed the rocket stoves sold by StoveTec, which are manufactured in large quantities in China.

work together to make a difference! We want to deliver clean and efficient cook stoves to people that need them. StoveTec doesn’t need patents, or other funky protection for our products.
