Cozinha a Lenha (Cooking with Wood) is a part of the Green Land Blue Planet project. Heating and cooking with a sustainable energy source, such as rejected wood, wooden leftovers and/or wood coming from forest maintenance, ideally collected on a nearby wood or forest is part of Green Land Blue Planet vision towards a sustainable future.

Modern wood or pellets stoves and cookers have come a long way were it comes to efficiency (high use of the wood/pellets calorific power) and the reducing of smoke emissions, making its use sustainable when compared to other energy sources, especially, those that are not reusable or that, being reusable, require a long and complex process to be storage and/or transport until your home.

Each case it is a case, but if wood and/or pellets are a raw material easy to obtain on a local perspective, probably your ecological footprint may be reduced if you decide to embrace the use of wood and/or pellets to heat and cook.

Cozinhar a Lenha will help you to choose the best solution for your home, with the goal of helping the environment while improving your quality of life.

  • Diversity of Energy Sources

Achieve a safer system by reducing your overall energy dependence by diversifying the energy sources and reducing the dependence from conventional energy sources.

  • Efficient Combustion

Take the most of each kilogram of wood/pellets put inside the combustion chamber choosing high efficient devices and simultaneously reducing the smoke emissions of carbon monoxide.

  • Heating and Cooking

Maximize the advantages of the heat being produced from your device by heating several rooms while cooking or heating the water.

Efficient and technologically developed Wood/Pellets device, that allow simultaneous heating and cooking, can be a sustainable option:


Improve safety by diversifying the energy sources

Use of rejected wood, wooden leftovers or wood coming from floristry maintenance and harvesting as an energy source.

Use of device that allow simultaneous functions like heating and cooking, and in some cases the water heating.

Use of an energy source (wood/pellets) that usually is locally available or can be planted locally (no need for long and complex process of storage and/or transportation).

Use of an energy source (wood/pellets) with a low industrial transformation process when compared to other conventional energy sources like electricity or diesel.

If you already have a wood/pellets old device, check its efficiency and smoke emissions, maybe the change of your device will be the best for you and for the environment, allowing heating more rooms on your house while cooking and reducing the wood/pellet consumption.

Devices with secondary and/or tertiary air combustion are able to reduce significantly the gases (mostly monoxide carbon) resulting from combustion released on smoke. This efficient devices can reach almost near zero monoxide carbon and particles emissions.
