Ultra-clean, electricity generating, biomass cookstove for emerging countries

June 2019
Gallery HomeStove  1
Gallery HomeStove  1


HomeStove is an ultra-clean, electricity generating, biomass cookstove.

The household solution reduces toxic smoke emissions by 90% and fuel consumption by more than 50% compared to traditional open fire cooking. The HomeStove also co-generates electricity from the flame, enabling users to charge mobile devices, and power efficient bright LED lights. Locally available solid biomass is used as power source: wood, cow dung, or crop waste. Bundled with mobile adapters and BioLite's gooseneck LED light, Homestove's unique selling proposition is complete, clean home energy. The solution also eliminates the environmental, health, and economic costs of open-fire cooking and kerosene lighting. HomeStove generates 2W of electricity from the cooking flame.
