THIS JOB HAS EXPIRED
Half the planet still cooks on indoor open wood fires and the toxic smoke they emit kills nearly 2 million people every year, twice as many as malaria. Previous efforts to address indoor smoke with clean cookstoves have failed to achieve the smoke reductions necessary to protect health and have also failed to catalyze consumer demand due to minimal functionality beyond that of a traditional open fire. BioLite has developed an advanced, affordable, clean burning stove that combines unprecedented emissions reductions with economically valuable electricity generation.
