Here is a finished demonstration mass heater
Standard wood stoves waste much of the heat and wood energy when they burn, with much of it going up the chimney as hot smoke. A rocket stove burns more efficiently – converting nearly all of the fuel into CO2 and water, including the smoke. It also stores it’s thermal energy in a “battery,” a bench that stores the heat from the fire and releases it slowly in the hours following. The stove can burn both logs and scrap wood and the best part is, it can heat the same space as a regular wood stove with 1/4 of the wood!
