Since its founding in 2011, BURN has transformed the lives of approximately 25.1 million people by manufacturing and distributing over 4.5 million clean cookstoves, preventing an estimated 21.7 million tons of CO2 from entering the atmosphere. BURN’s ECOA range includes biomass, LPG, ethanol, electric stoves, and cookware, intending to reach every Nigerian household.
