High-Efficiency Cook Stove Greenway Grameen Infra has developed an efficient biomass cook stove that delivers clean combustion without any moving parts.

ENVIRONMENTAL According to the company, a Greenway Smart Stove mitigates 1.8 tons of GHG emissions annually.

SOCIAL Emissions from traditional cook stoves are responsible for 4 million premature deaths annually, according to the Global Alliance for Clean Cookstoves.

ECONOMIC The Greenway Smart Stove uses 65% less fuel than traditional mud stoves, leading to reduced fuel costs and need for fuel gathering.

The Greenway Smart Stove is a user co-created biomass stove that delivers 65% fuel savings and 70% smoke reduction and works with any solid biomass fuel.1 Over 3 billion people worldwide, including 68% of India’s population, still cook daily meals on unhealthy, inefficient traditional mud stoves or indoor open fires. This stove employs a patent-pending air-flow generator that ensures clean combustion without any moving or motorized parts. The unit retails for $23. Usage of the stove prevents the release of 1.8 tons of greenhouse gas emissions annually, while reducing household air pollution levels to those deemed safe by the WHO. Why a Sustainia100 solution? Families burning biomass do not have access to modern fuels such as petroleum gas or electricity due to lack of infrastructure and the cost. This solution makes use of locally available biomass, burning it cleaner and healthier.

The Greenway Smart Stove delivers 65% fuel savings and 70% smoke reduction as compared to traditional mud stoves.
