SOCIAL InStoves improve the lives of women and children by protecting them from the harmful emissions and disfiguring burns often caused by open fires.

THE TRIPLE BOTTOM LINE

ENVIRONMENTAL According to InStove, each unit prevents 58 to 97 tons of wood from being consumed annually, compared to alternatives.

InStove is an institutional wood-burning stove designed to cook a large quantity of food at the lowest cost to users and the environment. According to the company, InStove reduces fuel consumption by 75% to 90%, remains cool to the touch during operation, and reduces harmful emissions by up to 98%. In addition to preparing food, each stove is designed to be compatible with health applications including high-capacity water pasteurization and sterilization of medical supplies or bio-hazardous waste. These applications offer a revenue-generating opportunity for family businesses or communities. Collectively, these features make the InStove particularly suited to serving displaced people in, for example, refugee camps and disaster zones. WHY A SUSTAINIA100 SOLUTION? According to the World Health Organization, approximately three billion people use open fires or simple biomass-burning stoves for cooking and heating. As a consequence, more than four million people die prematurely due to illness relating to indoor air pollution.1 The efficiency of this stove helps to minimize indoor pollution, while it can also be used for health-related purposes.

ECONOMIC InStove reports that the cost of the technology is recovered in 7 to 12 months due to fuel savings alone.
