Join our Cooking Revolution.

Right now, three billion people worldwide are cooking on open fires, or using dirty and dangerous fuel. This has a huge impact on health, with an estimated 4 million people dying from indoor cooksmoke each year*. This is more than HIV/AIDS and Malaria combined and is a problem that is widely unknown and entirely preventable. The majority of the people affected are women and children living in developing countries who die prematurely from illness caused by excessive smoke inhalation.



But it doesn’t have to be this way. African Clean Energy has developed the ACE 1 Ultra-Clean Biomass Cookstove, which burns fuel cleanly to make mealtimes a smoke-free zone. You need only look at the graphic above to see how the ACE 1 positively impacts health and the environment, and combats poverty on a global scale.

While the ACE 1 Ultra-Clean Biomass Cookstove is an African product, it offers real global possibilities. After the success of our previous cookstove model in Southern Africa, we found that people from all over the world also wanted to experience the smoke-free convenience that our cookstoves provided, using it to enhance good times spent with friends. They wanted to take our cookstoves camping, to festivals and to the park. With a successful campaign on OnePlanetCrowd.nl, we are currently setting up a webshop to make sure the ACE 1 is available globally.
