About Matribhumi Urja
Established with a vision to revolutionize traditional cooking methods in Nepal, Matribhumi Urja stands at the forefront of innovative bio-mass mud stove technology. Our diverse range encompasses everything from small household stoves to large institutional ICS, catering to a wide spectrum of industries including paper processing, dairy, school canteens, military mess, gumbas, and temples.
Our commitment to innovation is evident in our unique 'Matribhumi Air Supply Disc Burner (ASDB)', a patented product that has been exhaustively tested at the Renewable Energy Testing Station (RETS). It introduces an ingenious method of air supply from bottom to top, diverging from the conventional stoves which rely on air supply via the firewood inserting portion. This innovation sets us apart, ensuring our stoves are not only the most efficient but also the most environmentally friendly. With up to 60% firewood savings, high thermal efficiency, and drastically reduced indoor pollutants, our mud stoves are designed to make a significant impact.
Despite technological advancements, an overwhelming 77% of households in Nepal still rely on traditional biomass energy, primarily firewood, for their cooking needs. The repercussions of such widespread reliance are grave, with indoor air pollution ranking as the 4th major cause of deaths in poor and developing countries. In Nepal alone, around 7,500 individuals lose their lives annually to ailments stemming from smoke in kitchens, a toll equivalent to the devastating earthquake of 2015.
