Nearly 3 billion people rely on wood as a fuel for household cooking. The smoke generated by this is responsible for more deaths than malaria and HIV/Aids.
Nexleaf Analytics has developed a device which can be installed in cook stoves for remotely monitoring the emission. The device sends data to cloud based system which helps in improving the cook stoves. The improved cook stoves help in reducing carbon emission at rural households .
The team has plans to extend this project to 4000 households which could help in reducing the significant amount of air pollution.
