Wood Stove To Save Lives

Biolite Homestove

The Chulha is about to change. This is the Biolite Homestove which is smokeless wood stove that could help save lives. Half of our planet still cooks on smoky open fires causing pollution. According to World Health Organisation (WHO) every year over 4 million people die prematurely from illness attributable to the household air pollution from cooking with solid fuels. Most open fire users also don't have electricity.
The Homestove was built to bridge the gap.

Biolite Homestove

Biolite Homestove was designed by a rocket scientist. It cuts fuel consumption by half which reduces toxic emissions by 90% and generates electricity that can charge a phone. It comes with a little fan that makes the fire burn efficiently and cools the power generator. The Homestove has already reached some poor communities but we still don't know if it's durable enough to replace the Ubiquitous Indian Chulha
