Innovative, Clean Cooking
Over 4 Million people die annually from illnesses attributable to household air pollution from cooking with solid fuels
World Health Organisation (WHO) February 2016
Exposure to Household Air Pollution (HAP) from burning wood, charcoal, coal and kerosene is a leading risk factor for diseases, including childhood pneumonia, chronic obstructive pulmonary disorder, ischemic
heart disease, stroke, and lung cancer, and is a factor in over 4 Million deaths a year.
Our goal as a Company is to be instrumental in helping to
reduce the number of people dying from illnesses attributable
to household air pollution, caused by cooking with these
biomass fuels .
To that end we have, after a great deal of research and
development, introduced the Simi Stove, a complete rethink
of the clean cooking stove.
Just modernising stoves to emit less pollution is only going to add to the cost of the stove. To truly eliminate
household pollution we need to start using clean "Smokeless" fuels such as Ethanol. These fuels, however, do not burn like biomass fuels and therefore, if we are to keep stoves affordable for a mass market, it is important to design the stove in conjunction with these new fuels.
Our patented Simi Stove, which is engineered to keep manufacturing costs to a minimum, has been specifically designed to burn clean cooking fuels, such as Ethanol and Methanol, extremely efficiently (see Chatham House report) and we truly believe that, along with the CCA, it can contribute and play an integral role in reducing this form of household pollution and save many lives in the process.
HAP is also responsible for 25% of the GLOBAL black carbon emissions - the second largest contributor to climate change after carbon dioxide. To see the effect Simi Stove can have on climate change click here
