    OUR MISSSION

    Protect drinking water within areas of the world in short supply.

    How the Green Fire project was born?

    The determining role of the Himalayas on the future of the drinking water resources, for the whole humanity, is what led us to Nepal.

     

    In Nepal, Pakistan, Ladakh in North of India, Tibet in China and Boutan, at altitudes, between 2000 and 4500 meters, deforestation is a major problem.

     

    Intensive deforestation leads to climate change, depletion of soil and drinking water resources.

     

    For exemple in Nepal and other country in Asia and Africa, the clandestine manufacture of charcoal is one of the causes of this massive destruction in poor countries. It multiplies aggression towards the forest, especially as precarious heating and cooking systems require a lot of biomass.

     

    Bad combustion in the same facilities produces toxic and irritating fumes that cause serious eye and lung diseases.

    In Nepal, after 20 years of political unrest, the authorities are trying to regain control of this public health problem and are open to proposals for the protection of their forests and water.

    For Hydrantman, mastering the use of the raw material to make fire, is a first step to preserve the forest, educate the population in the simplest way whilst offering better comfort.

     

    Our first contribution on the ground is to suck and help create small businesses and cooperatives for the production of pellets, and will provide families with a Green Fire.

    The Green Fire

    The Green Fire, conceptualized and developed by Jean Garrigues, President and Founder of HYDRANTMAN Swiss Association, is an ecological stove inspired by the principle of wood pyrolysis to produce clean and combustible gas. It allows you to cook food with compressed biomass in the form of pellets and small wood. The tests carried out in Switzerland and Nepal, after many adjustments, confirm a biomass saving of 50% in comparison with charcoal!

    HYDRANTMAN contributes particularly in the Himalayan highlands of Nepal and neighboring countries, to organize meetings to raise awareness among the population and more particularly the local authorities by proposing action plans, multidisciplinary initiatives, elementary and eco-responsible.
