THERE ARE 3 REASONS THAT "AGNI" MUST HAVE ACCOMPLISHED HIGHER COMBUSTION PERFORMANCES COMPARED WITH OVERSEAS TOP BRANDS. 1)JAPAN HAS COME TO BE SO MUCH RELY ON THE LIFELINE IN SPITE OF DISASTERS SUCH AS EARTHQUAKES,TYPHOONS.2)JAPAN HAS SERIOUS FOREST PROBLEM THAT CONIFEROUS AFFORESTED AREAS BECOME 36% OF TOTAL LAND OF JAPAN. 3)THERE ARE FEW JAPANESE WHO CAN USE WOOD-STOVES WELL. WE CONSIDERED THAT WOOD STOVES ARE NEEDED IN JAPAN WHICH CAN BE DISASTER RESISTANT, AND USING "CARBON NEUTRAL" MATERIALS AND EASY HANDLING. "AGNI" IS NEWLY DESIGNED WOOD-STOVE FOR JAPANESE NEW LIFE-STANDARD.
