>> Dear Group,
>> Greetings from Servals, Chennai.
>> Chennai is currently at the epicentre of what has been declared a national disaster - due to the floods. And as the city is showing its resilience in peeping out of the floods and looking ahead at a rehabilitation phase, many of us believe that "business as usual" is the best way to be and do and march on. :)
>> Please read below an "announcement" that is an honourable achievement for us at Servals. I also hope that this "achievement" will pave the way for more such communities here there and everywhere, bring together more stakeholders to create such achievements - or in the least,offer a precedent to many communities that are as capable of such achievements as Sunderbans, the current project location in India.
>> Thank you for your wishes and cheer:)

>> Dear Servals Family, :)
>> The Servals Team is happy and proud to announce that it has received the Letter of Approval from the Ministry for its Clean Development Mechanism (CDM Program) for its cookstove program. Please see enclosed mail from Atmosfair, our German Carbon Funder.
>> Highlights of the achievement:
>> First carbon project with Gasifier cookstoves
>> Signifies the role of carbon finance and its ability to introduce an new innovative technology to the Indian and also global cookstove market
>> Signifies Atmosfair's  pioneering work in designing a new cookstove methodology at the UNFCCC 
>> Signifies, for the first time, the possibility of including the charcoal production in cookstoves to the carbon credit system.
>> Highlights of the project executed in Sunderbans so far
>> Largest dissemination of gasifiers in the world till date
>> First ever to build in a charcoal buyback system
>> Best organised at the local level (kudos to our implementation partner in Sunderbans)
>> First economic model around cookstoves where the users can "earn while they cook"
>>  The Indian Government's approval letter states this nicely - "The Program of Activities contributes to sustainable development in India"

>> Dear all,
>> I would like to let you know that we have finally received the Letter of Approval from the Indian Authorities for our CDM GS PoA called "Dissemination of improved cook stoves and generation of charcoal".
>> I would like to thank all of the involved partners for this great achievement. In particular I would like to thank Sujatha Srinivasan and Moulindu Banjeree for all their efforts in project development and implementation.
>> With this approval in hands, we are now able to introduce a new innovative technology to the Indian and also global cookstove market. This gasifier stove technology originally designed by Dr. TLUD, customized and manufactured by Servals Automation Pvt Ltd. allows beneficiary households for the first time to create                                               income through sale of charcoal produced during the daily cooking.
>> For this new technology, atmosfair has pioneered a new cookstove methodology at the UNFCCC and thus opened the possibility of including the charcoal production in cookstoves to the carbon credit system.
>> This very special advantage of charcoal generation as waste product of the cooking task, will open new economic chances for                                               poor households and for all carbon reduction projects using this cookstove technology.
>> We are looking forward to the further growth of the PoA and a fruitful collaboration with our Indian partners.
>> Kind regards,
>> Katrin

Biochar's high carbon content and porous composition helps soil to retain water, nutrients, protect soil microbes, and ultimately increase crop yields while growing healthier, more productive, disease-resistant plants. All this while helping combat global climate change by sequestering and stabilizing rich organic carbon in your soil.

Leave your carbon footprint in the garden...

“If you could continually turn a lot of organic material into biochar, you could, over time, reverse the history of the last two hundred years…We can, literally, start sucking some of the carbon that our predecessors have poured into the atmosphere down through our weeds and stalks and stick it back in the ground. We can run the movie backward. We can unmine some of the coal, undrill some of the oil. We can take at least pieces of the Earth and – this is something we haven’t done for quite a while – leave them Better Than We Found Them.” -Bill McKibben, author, climate activist and founder of 350.org

“You never change things by fighting the existing reality. 
To change something, build a new model that makes the old model obsolete.”  
– R. Buckminster Fuller

Whiskey is for drinking - water is for fighting over."
