80% of African women cook on open fires, which causes lung diseases and deforestation, and it’s costly, too. Many aid organisations have developed energy-saving stoves, but adoption rates have generally been low. Our idea is different. The inventor of the Noah stove, an Ethiopian-trained clay expert, had a very simple insight: wouldn’t it be great if poor women could earn money while cooking? The resulting product is a gasifier that doesn’t burn wood to ash during the cooking process, but gasifies it to charcoal. This can be reused for fire or it can be turned into biochar, an organic fertiliser that improves soil fertility long-term. A Noah Stove saves 1,8t CO2 compared to standard cooking processes. Our gasifier is made of clay, straw and water, and the burning chamber consists of used oil cans. The Noah stove can be produced locally, and thus create local jobs.
