About Emerging Cooking Solutions

Our mission

Our mission is to end the use of charcoal for cooking, diminish unnecessary death and disease from air-polution and stop the deforestation of Africa, starting in Zambia. 

Creative Solutions to Big Problems

Since 2012, we have pioneered the use of pellets for cooking in Africa, a cost effective alternative to environmentally detrimental charcoal, that can serve as a model for many countries and - together with solar - change the energy landscape of Africa.

"Biomass-waste Pellets for Efficient Cookstoves developed by Emerging Cooking Solutions AB is an inspiring example of a non-fossil, non-nuclear climate innovation with the global potential to substantially reduce greenhouse gas emissions"

Håkan Wirtén, Secretary General, WWF Sweden
