CookClean manufactures efficient cookstoves to displace the resources wasteful and unhealthy traditional stoves which kill 13,400 people and subject 21 million to Household Air Pollution yearly in Ghana.
This method of cooking has a devastating effect on Ghanaian forests which have been reduced to 25% of its original size. Furthermore, CookClean manufactures sustainable biomass cooking fuels made of agricultural waste and sawdust in its own 2nd production facilities to complement the stove production.
CookClean has therefore enhanced the transition of cooking on open fire to using efficient cookstoves and also transitioned from the use of environmentally unsustainable firewood to sustainable biomass fuels.
