The Need - Clean Cooking
Half the planet cooks on smoky open fires, causing over 4 million premature deaths annually. This is more than AIDS, malaria, and tuberculosis, combined.
These smoky open fires also contribute to climate change, releasing more black carbon into the atmosphere than all the cars and trucks in the world.
Using our patented technology, BioLite has created The HomeStove, a low-cost biomass cookstove that, by converting waste heat into electricity, reduces smoke emissions by up to 95% while simultaneously providing users with the capability to charge mobile phones and LED lights.
