In most developing countries we learned that free-of-charge distributed stoves were not being used in households. Some of the reasons being that the stoves had user`s limitations and that user´s visible problem was not only smoke or fuel flexibility.
GCT-Cookstove is an innovation to take care of interconnected problems of kitchen energy, water management, agricultural soil inputs, and waste management. We believe that by providing a solution that targets more than one problem especially to low-income earners, we help them to save time and money, contribute to more than 10 SDGs and can effectively impact people of all income segments globally through benefits and carbon emission reduction.
The use of 1 GCT stove by each household reduces up to 3Tons of Carbon Emissions per year in developing countries, avoiding up to 90% of indoor smoke containing CO, CO2, and eye irritating particulate materials especially PM2.5 .
This improves upon user`s health socially and air quality environmentally.
The fuel used can be a number of different types of biomass but the outcome and it's benefits is the same. The picture below describes the outputs from the cookstove and how it can be used.
