Over 4 million people die a year from household air pollution, with millions more suffering from respiratory illnesses and poor health. Traditional firewood cookstoves are a major burden to development, generating harmful emissions in unventilated households. Firewood is a time-consuming and inefficient task, and depleted resources can strain households financially. “Clean” cookstoves on the market are difficult to use and have low adoption rate due to high costs and drastic changes that don’t fit with traditional methods. Asia is home to 60% of the world’s total slum population and India alone contains 70% of households that depend on solid fuels.
