This was my first homepage. I just (aug 2013) found my login so I
could get in here and, most importantly, take away some pages with my
email addresses in plain text. Some were also no longer in existance.
There are contact forms on the sites below:
I have some new homepages that are more up-to-date (both content and layout!):
Here are some examples of what was
here (and that I could make available on other sites):
Enclosed school stove for ½ oil-barrel pots and baking oven Tanzania 1989
A clay-brick 3 pot woodstove Rwanda 1999 (even unsucessful stoves)
Kerosene Pressure Lamp 1994/95 | Kerosene/electricity refrigerator efficiency
Influence of angle on Solarpanel output 1994/95 | Device for measuring solar exposure "Sun Surveyor"
Tree planting holes and water 1994
Our Rain Water Tank 1989
A ferrocement rain water tank 1988 | I also made a tank 2002 using roofsheeting as form but haven't had time to publish
I have lived in rural situations without mains electricity and
centrally piped water, over 10 yrs in Sweden and over 2 years in East
Africa. The practical experiences I have gained included organic
agriculture (mainly vegetables), 12 Volt electric systems supplied by
windgenerator and solar panels. Solar water heating. Woodburning for
cooking, baking centralheating. Though it´s not sustainable
technology, some use of kerosene ("parafin") for pressure
lamps and refrigerator can make life easier. Some experience with
Biogas, Steam engines and Producer gas.
I intend to put up the material I have, but it will take some time. If you have any questions about the above areas but don't see anything here yet, send me a mail: ": I was looking for "steam engines" and I didn't see anything about that on your site. Then I´ll tell you about my experiences, or try to incorporate that subject with higher priority into my site.
