It is not a secret to anyone that deforestation in Africa has become catastrophic. A significant part of the forest is cut down unsystematically for cooking food in the places where inhabitants live. Now, with the growth of population and increasing of consumption, deforestation has irreversible consequences.

Many areas left without forests as a result of cutting down or fires become desert, as the loss of trees leads to the fact that a thin fertile layer of soil is easily washed by precipitation. Desertification is causing by a huge number of environmental refugees - ethnic groups, for whom the forest was the main or only source of livelihood. Many inhabitants of forest territories disappear together with their house. Entire ecosystems are destroyed, plants of irreplaceable species used for medicines and many bioresources valuable to mankind are destroyed too. More than a million species living in tropical forests are threatened with extinction. Soil erosion, which develops after disboscation, leads to flooding, becouse nothing can't stop the flow of water. Floods result in a violation of the groundwater level, as the rootstock of trees that feed by them are dying. Tropical forests, in which more than 50% of the Earth's species live, were previously covered by 14% of the planet, and now only 6%.
The proposed reactive fireplace allows more efficient use of all types of solid fuel. Can be used firewood, branches, foliage, charcoal. Thanks the using of a special design, the fuel burns more fully and the maximum temperature is reached in one point where the heated surface is located. This results in fuel savings of at least two and a half to three times. Savings for each family on the purchase of coal or firewood for cooking are two – three times, which is very sensitive to the family budget.
Savings for each family on the purchase of charcoal or firewood for cooking in two or three times, which is very sensitive to the family budget.
Significantly, deforestation for cooking is reduced in two to three times!
