ENVIROFIT CLEAN COOKSTOVES Partnering with the Shell Foundation’s Breathing Spaces program, in Fall 2007 Envirofit launched a clean technology cookstoves business aimed at addressing the global killer Indoor Air Pollution (IAP). According to the World Health Organization, more than three billion people cook their daily meals indoors using traditional fire and stoves, burning biomass fuels like wood and crop waste. Because these traditional cooking methods cannot achieve clean combustion, the majority of the heat is wasted and the biomass is converted into toxic substances like carbon monoxide, benzene and formaldehyde. The resulting IAP kills 1.6 million people every year. That’s one person every 20 seconds. Due to their increased exposure, over 85% of IAP deaths are women and children under five. Envirofit clean cookstoves are a solution to this silent killer. ENVIROFIT CLEAN COOKSTOVE BENEFITS • Up to 80% less smoke and harmful gasses • Up to 60% less biomass fuel (wood, crop waste, etc) • Up to 40% reduction in cooking cycle time • Patent‐pending EnviroFlame Combustion System™ • Used with traditional cooking styles and posture • High durability ‐ 5 year warranty on combustion chamber, 2 year warranty on all other components SUSTAINABILITY AND SCALABILITY Envirofit is proving its expertise in engineering high‐volume centralized manufacturing, global supply chain management, market research and sales channel networks in developing world markets. Currently achieving high sales volumes in India, Envirofit is a uniquely qualified company to successfully expand into new global markets in the Caribbean, Latin America, Africa and SE Asia.
