Company Overview: 

The World Health Organization asserts around 3 billion people still cook and heat their homes using solid fuels in open fires and leaky stoves. Such cooking and heating produces high levels of indoor air pollution with a range of health-damaging pollutants, including small soot particles that penetrate deep into the lungs. In poorly ventilated dwellings, indoor smoke can be 100 times higher than acceptable levels for small particles. In addition, methane and black carbon (sooty particles) emitted by inefficient stove combustion are powerful climate change pollutants. We are solving these problems with a safe, no fuel, no flame product that stores energy to cook when and where the users need it most. The potential commercial impact is very large, as biomass-based fuel sources are expected to be increasingly scarce and expensive, particularly in developing regions of the world with growing populations. Domestic applications are also possible, emphasizing the product as a no fuel heat source for cookouts, tail gating, and green restaurants.
