Nearly 2 million people - mostly women and children - die every year from respiratory diseases related to indoor cooking smoke. This is more than double the number of deaths caused by malaria each year.
BURN Manufacturing Co. (BMC) aims be the sole manufacturer of high quality biomass cookstoves in Kenya and East Africa. BMC has an exclusive licensing relationship with BURN Design Lab (BDL) - one of the world's leading stove design firms. BDL's JikoPoa stove design was recently selected by Inhabitat.com as one of "Four Cooking Stove Designs That Can Save the World."
BMC will manufacture and sell 3 million super fuel efficient cookstoves in East Africa by 2022. BMC is currently raising $3.8 million to establish a modern continuous-flow manufacturing facility in Kenya with satellite assembly factories in Rwanda, Tanzania and Uganda.
BMC is looking for additional equity investors, for more information please contact Peter Scott at: firstname.lastname@example.org
