We are a rising star


The Tegstove climate project developed by CO2logic, Ecobenin, Trinity College & supported by Proximus is recognised as a 'rising star' project by the European Business awards for the Environment (organised by the European Commission). This climate project provides rural communities with an efficient cookstove that improves health and lowers the use of firewood which helps to prevent deforestation. The Tegstove also uses heat exchange (Thermal Electrical Generator) to generate electricity. This can be used by families who normally would not have access to this type of technology, and use fossil fuels instead. The project makes a positive impact on different Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) in the area by improving the livelihoods of people while also protecting the precious forests.
