No more tears
According to a WHO estimate, India has among the largest burden of disease due to the use of household fuels. It is estimated that 28% of all deaths due to indoor air pollution in developing countries occur in India. Smoky interiors and runny eyes are the least of the problem faced in a typical rural setting. The woman of the house spends precious hours in foraging for fuel to keep the stoves burning and has terrible health issues due to the constant smoke.
TIDE has developed fuel efficient, smokeless stoves for domestic and commercial stoves. These stoves cut down fuel usage by more than 30% thus directly saving costs for the poor. It also cuts down smoke thus reducing Indoor air pollution, a major contributor to deaths in rural India. Pyro Mini is a customized easy to use stove built for rural use and uses the same wood fuel.
