The 'Mimi Moto' Air Gasifier Stove Prevents Toxic Gas from Entering Homes

Designed for the people of South Africa, the 'Mimi Moto' air gasifier stove is intended to stop the release of toxic gases into the home. Many residents of the country utilize wood-burning stoves because of the cost-effectiveness and not having to rely on electricity. However, the units often release toxic gases into the home and subsequently can cause harm to the health of inhabitants.

The 'Mimi Moto' stove works by transforming wood pellets into gas and now allowing toxic vapors to enter the surrounding area. A built-in fan blows the flame to keep it going for up to 5.5-hours on low speed and can be recharged via a separate solar panel.

The 'Mimi Moto' air gasifier stove has won an award from the UN Global Alliance for Clean Cookstoves for its ability to provide a cleaner way to cook and prepare food.
