BURN | Life. Saving. Stoves.
We are a sustainable business that promotes achievable solutions to the most pressing challenges of our times: intractable poverty and climate change. Our stoves reduce the health impacts of traditional cookstoves, help families save money on fuel and ultimately save one of our planet’s most precious commodities: its trees. We take a user-centred approach to the design and development of our modern African cookstoves. In the next 5 years, we will graduate our customers from reliance on charcoal to cleaner fuel.

 BURN has designed, produced and distributed 350,000 life-saving charcoal-and wood-burning stoves from Sub-Saharan Africa’s first, and only, state-of-the-art clean cookstove manufacturing facility.

THE CHALLENGE: Traditional cooking methods are bankrupting families, killing people and destroying forests in Sub-Saharan Africa.

OUR SOLUTION: Locally manufacture cookstoves that people love, save them $150-300/year, improve their health and offer a payback period of only 2-3 months.

What does it take to get a clean cookstove to a woman like Teresia Wanjogo?

Our 4 person, expat and Kenyan market research team works with local cooks to ascertain their needs.

 

During the multi-year design process, the team works closely with both users and our US design team to test and improve numerous prototypes.
Our 12 person design team based in Kenya and  Washington State designs and fabricates stove prototpyes and then optimizes them based on feedback from the lab and the consumer.

 

BURN is currently developing a number of revolutionary biomass and fossil fuel cooks for Sub Saharan Africa.
Our 5 person testing team conducts emissions and performance testing in the US and field testing in Kenya.
