Back in the day, food was commonly cooked on stoves that used burning wood. Although it does its job, wood-burning stoves are not really known for efficiency: Heat is not evently distributed in the pot, you need to continuously fan the stove to keep the wood burning, and the smoke it creates contains high amounts of carbon monoxide that causes health risks to people who inhale it.

To ease those problems, a company called BioLite has developed a wood-burning CampStove, which they intend to release in spring of 2012. Targetting backpackers, campers, and even families in developing communities, the BioLite CampStove converts heat energy into electricity, which then powers a small fan that helps improve the wood’s combustion. It also has a USB port that can charge a cell phone or power-up a LED light in case you are cooking at nighttime in the middle of whatever.

BioLite claims that its CampStove requires half the amount of wood needed to burn a traditional stove and cuts smoke emissions by up to 95%. You do not need to cut a whole tree to fuel your cooking, just put loose branches and other materials like pine cones, underbrush, coconut husks, rice husks, and even cow dung, into the CampStove and start boiling the broth. This makes it convenient for campers who worry about carrying cans of petroleum to power their stoves.

The BioLite CampStove weighs just below two pounds and can boil a liter of water in less than four minutes. It has also won awards prior its retail release, including the St. Andrews Prize for the Environment and first place in the 2010 Sustainable Brands Innovation Open. The company hopes that profits from this product will help subsidize the cost of its HomeStove model for indoor use.
