We have created a solution that’s better for our health, and the climate, and costs less. And most importantly it’s available to everyone, even the rural poor.

Tom Price
Director of Strategic Initiatives

Over three billion people cook everyday using dirty fuels like sticks, charcoal, and dung. It’s terrible for their health, and the environment, leading to deforestation and erosion. And collecting firewood puts women and girls at risk. Inyenyeri developed a better solution : Clean cooking fuel utility, available to all rich and poor
The best solution is an integrated Fuel+Stove system, designed around customer needs.
