Humanitarian Relief

Clean burning cooking solutions that save lives

In partnership with

RealRelief_R2

Millions of people worldwide are cooking on polluted open fires due to a lack of resources. This smoky environment causes severe health problems, a shocking number of which, turn out to be fatal. Our fuel and stoves provide a clean burning and safe cooking solution to this vulnerable population.

Humanitarian Cooking Challenges

Around 3 billion people (500m households) cook with smoky fuels on a daily basis, resulting in over 4 million deaths per annum from diseases such as Pneumonia and Cancer, more than AIDS/HIV and Malaria combined. Smoke also causes Cataracts, the largest cause of blindness in the developing world. Being the primary cooks of the family, it is almost always women who are the most affected.

Traditional cooking methods are also contributing to significant long lasting environmental damage; up to 4 million hectares are destroyed each year in Africa alone, mainly for use as firewood. Open fire cooking also drives people (again predominantly women) to spend up to 3 hours per day putting themselves at risk seeking wood from local forests. This is time that could be better spent on life enhancing activities, such as employment or education.

The launch of our clean burning, smoke free Boilex™ Ultraclean stoves, which are also more powerful than competitor products and use up to 80% less fuel than open fires, could have a profound impact on human life across the globe.Not only do they provide quicker, smoke free cooking, but they provide the convenience of using the cheapest and most readily available fuels, including biomass, such as wood, pellets and dung, and liquids, such as kerosene and alcohol.

Solutions for any global crisis situation

Our range offers a stove and fuel combination to meet all humanitarian cooking needs.

 

Zip™ Cooking Fuel is non-toxic and formulated using a naturally derived sustainable biofuel that burns cleanly with no sooty deposits. It is not classified as hazardous and is non – explosive and therefore safe to air transport / parachute drop to remote locations where needed most. Zip™ Cooking Fuel can be supplied in various formats, from bulk packs to handy pocket sizes together with a choice of stoves to provide bespoke cooking and heating solutions.

Our Boilex™ Pyramid stove, used with Zip™ Cooking Fuel c26g wrapped cubes, is ideal for individuals, as it is lightweight and flat packed and could be particularly useful for Aid Workers. Our Boilex™ Tower stove and Zip™ Cooking Fuel c100g blocks are the ideal first response cooking system for small groups in an emergency humanitarian situation. Lightweight and air transportable, they can be parachute dropped in bulk. As camps develop and infrastructure builds, our Boilex™ Ultraclean stove offers the cleanest and safest solution with the convenience of multi-fuel options.
