News and recent developments

Altener Scheffler reflector 2005
  • July 2005: Altener Energy Technologies presented a 3-square-meter Scheffler reflector for observation at the 19th Mara Development Forum in Mugumu, Serengeti District, Tanzania. Scheffler reflectors are large parabolic dishes that are often used to heat a cooking medium (such as water to make steam) that is circulated to one or more indoor cooking stations. This is a smaller version. Mr. Charles Onyango-Oloo of Altener says the new design is user friendly since "the port is mounted on one side and not in the middle of the reflector dish." Altener is currently developing a 1.5-square-meter, manually tracked Scheffler cooker.
