A unique waste-to-energy technology developed by Jim Archer and Mumo Musuva. It is a large cooking stove which is fuelled by non-recyclable waste turned into safe and clean energy. In only two hours, it can cook 77 liters of food and heat 800 liters of water!
Non-recyclable waste is incinerated at 880-1200 degrees centigrade and it emits a nearly odourless white vapour! It meets Kenyan, US EPA and European Environmental standards for gaseous emissions and ash.
The Impact: 3,601,000 kgs of rubbish burnt and 147,000 trees saved so far!
The CC helps in the reduction of methane gas emissions by incinerating heaps of rotting waste - where methane gas originates. Given that methane gas is 28 times more harmful to the earth’s atmosphere than CO2, the Cooker has a net positive carbon footprint.
The CC can save the carbon equivalent of cutting down 3000 mature trees in a year (a small forest!)
The CC burns plastic environmentally correctly.
The CC eliminates the use of wood fuel and charcoal. Both of these fuels are incredibly damaging to the environment and expensive. The CC runs on fuel which is completely free and widely available.
The CC incinerates above 800°C in order to meet W.H.O. minimum standards, generating heat for cooking which is smoke and soot free.
The CC can run 24 hours a day 365 days a year. It can heat and purify water for bathing and drinking, as well as having the potential to create steam to generate electricity to support a community.
