Refuse Recycling Stove Saves Lives and Environment in Kenya

I am seeing many more stories recently about the benefits of converting waste to fuel, including in my own state of Ohio, where the big electricity generating, coal burning utility is building a huge biowaste facility to replace some of its coal powered energy with alternative energy (whew! talk about a run on sentence!). On a much smaller level, but perhaps 100 times more impactful, a new invention in Kenya will convert waste to energy, thereby saving lives, time, injury, money and the environment. Check it out!

This seems like a win in every way: good for the environment, while addressing multiple needs of the community.

This is something that I think should have been explored long ago. It only makes sense.
