Zero / LPG cook container


Zero is a portable container of LPG designed to be used directly for cooking food. It was designed to replace the wood-burning stoves, which are used in a large scale in developing countries, where the exposure to indoor air pollution caused by pollutants, inefficiency, and dangerous cooking practices kill almost 4 million people each year worldwide, and millions suffer from cancer, pneumonia, heart and lung disease, blindness and burns. The inefficient burning of solid fuels also contributes to climate changes, deforestation, forest degradation and to the loss of the habitat and of the local biodiversity.
