Fuel Efficient Cook Stoves
By Paul Ndiho
A study by the World Health Organization (WHO) says indoor air pollution from cooking kills 4 million people globally each year because about 3 billion people cook and heat their homes using open fires and inefficient stoves that burn solid fuels such as firewood, animal dung, agricultural residues, charcoal and coal. But Moushine Serrar, a Moroccan born engineer and designer is taking aim at that statistic with his own new fuel efficient cook stoves called “Pratki”. In an interview with Africa 54’s Paul Ndiho, Engineer Serrar said that his new cook stoves are more efficient and less polluting.
