SCODE SP-FL Portable
Sustainable Community Development Services (SCODE)
The SCODE SP-FL Portable is a micro gasifier cookstove that uses an integrated low power fan to obtain a smokeless combustion process.
The SCODE SP-FL Portable is a front loading micro gasifier stove developed by Sustainable Community Development Services (SCODE). The stove uses a low power fan to burn any kind of biomass smokelessly.
Goal 7: Ensure access to affordable reliable sustainable and modern energy for all.
Poor rural and peri-urban populations in the the medium and high agricultural potential areas.
The SCODE SP-FL Portable is mass produced with SCODE´s input and is manufactured in regard to specifications provided by the Kenyan Bureau of Standards. SCODE’s warehouse in Nakuru fabricates the metal casing for the stoves whilst the ceramic components are sourced from Muranga. Per month the warehouse has a production capacity of 600 cookstoves.
Users can obtain the product directly from the manufacturers or through retailers, commision and awareness agents.
Exact number unknown. However, SCODE has distributed more than 50,000 cookstoves since 2013 between their different models.

The SCODE SP-Fl Portable is a side feed forced draft micro gasifier cookstove and it’s design is composed of a Whytheat K refractory cement combustion chamber and a 32 cfm low power fan with a regulator. The cookstove uses gauge 18 MS metal sheets for its housing.
Maximum Pot Capacity: 40 L

May be provided by the manufacturers.
Manufacturers specify multiple fuel usage, low consuming fan, savings up to 50% of fuelwood, reduction by 60% of smoke emmissions, easy to light, faster cooking than normal stoves and less ash production as their performance targets.
The safety concerns associated with the usage of wood-burning cookstoves are primarily related with carbon dioxide, carbon monoxide and sulfur dioxide emissions.
Another significant safety concern is domestic accidents such as accidental burning or spill-overs.
Due to the fact that the SCODE SP-FL requires a low power fan to assist with the combustion, an external power source is required. A solar panel or any other source of electricity can be installed to power the fan.
