(PRWEB) May 25, 2010 -- Indonesia based PT Waterland International has recently delivered the Bosch and Siemens Home Appliance Group's Protos Stove to local communities living near its Jatropha plantations in the region of Purwodadi – Central Java. Waterland will supply the Jatropha Oil to fuel the stoves.

Bosch and Siemens Protos is a stove powered by crude plant oil, which will be run on Jatropha Oil produced on Waterland’s plantations. Dr. William Nolten, CEO of Waterland stated “I am extremely satisfied that the people who live and work around our plantations can enjoy cooking their meals on a safe and clean burning stove, powered by the Jatropha oil that our company produces. I am happy that we can give back to the local community and to assist our neighbors in becoming self sufficient in fuel energy.”

Cleaner cooking = better health

More than 2.5 billion people around the world prepare their food on open fireplaces fuelled by firewood, plant residues and charcoal. This means emissions of hazardous concentrations of carcinogenic substances leading to various diseases, especially lung disease. The World Health Organization (WHO) estimates 1.6 million people die annually as a result of indoor air pollution caused by those fires. The Protos’ clean burning technology has approximately 10 times lower emissions than high quality kerosene stoves, and greatly reduces fuel consumption, indoor air pollution, and carbon emissions.

Dr. Nolten, CEO of Waterland added “our company’s success has as much to do with our technical knowledge and management expertise as it does with our business model which embodies elements of Economic, Environmental, and Social benefits. We pride ourselves on giving back to the community, by creating multiple jobs and helping to alleviate poverty. The jobs we are creating are helping to alleviate deforestation in the regions in which our company operates."
