CarboCo

carboco_logo_bigCarboCo was founded in 2010 to develop improved cookstove technologies for people throughout the developing world in order to fight indoor air pollution, creating wealth, improving health, and protect the environment.

A charcoal stove designed by CarboCo and a large UK company went on to sell in large volumes in East Africa.

The company’s business model evaporated with the collapse of the carbon markets, and the company ceased operations in 2013.

Many of the learnings from CarboCo were incorporated by the Madagascar Charcoal Company.
