SOCIAL OPPORTUNITY
The rocket stove aims to address multiple issues across health, quality of life and environmental sustainability.

Environmental Sustainability – Deforestation is an issue across the globe and residential use of wood for cooking is a large contributor to the cutting down of trees in developing countries. Removal of trees reduces the Earth’s capacity to process the carbon dioxide released from human activity. Additionally, this “stored” carbon is then released when combusted. Carbon dioxide, methane and carbon monoxide is released in the burning of wood – when inefficient combustion occurs, black carbon is emitted. Black carbon is one of the top contributors to global warming.

Health – Respiratory issues associated with cooking are estimated to result in over 4.3 million deaths per year. Current methods of burning fuels for cooking are inefficient, cause a lot of smoke and production of harmful gases.

Quality of life – The smoke from inefficient combustion also results in significant discomfort during cooking, causing itchy eyes, coughing and carbon (soot) on the walls and roof.
