Igniting Global Change
Using innovative cookstove technology to improve the world.
Burn Design Lab designs cookstoves that alleviate some of the world’s biggest problems...
During a normal service lifespan, each stove will save approximately 23 trees.
Why do we care?
Half the world’s population uses traditional biomass fuels (wood,charcoal, animal dung) and rudimentary stoves or an open fire
Improved Cookstoves Matter:
World Health Organization reports an estimated 265,000 deaths from fire-related burns
each year worldwide
Improved Cookstoves Affect Climate Change:
Burning solid fuels for cooking emits some of the most
significant contributors to global climate change
Did you know the Kuniokoa stick-fed rocket stove reduces fuel usage by close to 50 percent?
