The Problem: Smoke inhalation is a serious issue. In fact bad air from a bad environment is the number one killer of children under the age of 5 in the developing world. It gets worse: 15% of a families income is spent to buy these fuels. Many women spend several hours a day collecting wood or an alternative fuel source. If that wasn't bad enough, this is also a leading cause of deforestation, and a leading source of CO2 emission. We utilize fuel efficient stoves that turn those numbers around.
The Technology: The EzyStove reduces the amount of wood needed and the emissions of CO2 by 40% and other toxic gases by 70%, compared with a traditional "three stone" fire. The outer exoskeleton creates a strong long lasting barrier and protection from the intense heat, while enabling any type of pot or pan to be used.
