Why Biomass Stoves Matter - Now More Than Ever

Biomass currently provides ~85% of all household cooking energy in Sub-Saharan Africa.

Due to population growth alone, an additional 75,000 people on the continent rely on biomass each day.

Although BURN now offers a line of electric, hybrid and liquid fuel stoves, we believe it is imperative to provide super fuel-efficient solutions to households that only have access to biomass fuels. Watch the video to learn more about our approach.

Designing the Future of Clean Cooking

BURN's  25-person New Product Development team  - all of whom are based in Kenya  - are committed to creating the next generation of biomass cookstoves as well as a new range of electric, hybrid and gas stoves for Sub-Saharan Africa and beyond.

Over the next three years, BURN will enter 6 new countries and launch 5 new products. These stoves are poised to impact 23 million people by 2023.
