Designed to address these issues, the BioLite HomeStove is an advanced, forced draft biomass cookstove that uses BioLite’s patented thermoelectric fan technology to reduce toxic indoor smoke by up to 90%, eliminate up to 2.5 tons of greenhouse gas emissions (CO¬2e) per stove each year, and provide users with the capability to charge mobile phones, LED lights, and other USB-powered electronics, generating direct economic returns through a combination of fuel savings and electricity generation.
