Usage of a wood stove in rural India is inevitable. The people have traditionally used three stone stove for the cooking requirements. Many of the restaurants also followed the same for meeting out the thermal requirements. The smoke coming out of the stove will have health issue on rural women. The child and infant also seriously affected on the particulate matter from the stove. The proposed paper analyzed the above improved wooden stove to enhance the efficiency as well to reduce the pollution to the atmosphere. This paper is further analyzed to reduce the heat loss from the wall of the stove by incorporating waste heat recovery systems on the wall side to enhance the efficiency on the improved stove as well as a reduction in pollution level.
