To all,

Christa requested that I send this message to the lists (in addition to 
the Stoves Listserv).    Her message gives good background to the 
release of this great new document.

Dear stovers,

originally I planned to publish the link of the new gasification manual 
after ironing out some glitches ? but it seems I have been taken over by 

So here it comes:
let me officially announce the new edition of the Micro-gasification 
Manual of the Programme "Poverty-oriented Basic Energy Services (HERA)" 
  implemented by the Deutsche Gesellschaft fuer Internationale 
Zusammenarbeit (GIZ) GmbH."


The manual is going to be published also in a printed version later this 

The manual was only finalized this week, and the website is not yet 
fully in shape. There are more GIZ-HERA publications to come towards the 
end of the month (I will announce once they can be accessed). As many 
people are waiting for it, I asked for the micro-gasification manual to 
go online first. Thanks to the GIZ-colleagues this happened yesterday.

I want to take the opportunity to thank Heike Volkmer for the hard work 
as an editor to get thus far, as well as the co-authors of chapter two, 
Dr Paul Anderson and Dr Hugh McLaughlin, and the authors of chapter 
five, Kelpie Wilson and Thayer Tomlinson (please take note of the 
correct spelling of her surname...) for their contributions.

Thanks also go to all the numerous people who shared information and 
contributed to make this manual more comprehensive and meaningful.

The new edition has better looks thanks to the help of a professional 
designer contracted by GIZ. I personally think the new info graphics are 
stunning and hope you agree that this was worth waiting for.

The new version features many topics of recent discussions on the list, 
e.g. find a double page on the Goldstandard-project by Servals and 
Atmosfair with the Champion stove TLUD in the Sundarbans on pages 62/63 
(actually one of my favorite pages in the whole book).

Enjoy reading!

on behalf of GIZ HERA
