Vehicles, factories, and even wood burning stoves at homes are a big source of smog and soot pollution. Household air pollution through cooking food over open fire or wood stoves makes nearly equal impact on human health and environment. Ryan Fisher and Taylor Myers of Maryland University were always interested to improve the fire technology for bettering the environment and public health, so the duo started MF Fire, an award-winning firm dedicated to create smart wood burning stoves, combining modern design with advanced combustion science.
With MF Fire’s Catalyst wood burning stove, users can easily control the temperature remotely from a smartphone or tablet. This way, it becomes capable of burning wood more efficiently than traditional stoves. Catalyst wood stove monitors and adjusts the burn level automatically to make best use of wood AND prevent formation of soot and smoke.
The stove offers heat output of 10,000 to 60,000 BTU/hour, which is sufficient to heat about 2,000-square feet of area. It comes with a standard 6-inch exhaust pipe and a convenient ash pan for easy clean up. Its companion mobile app can also be used to adjust the temperature. In addition, real-time safety and reload alerts are sent to users. There are even options to monitor its performance and other metrics related to environmental impact, emissions, and fuel savings.
You just need to load, lit, and close the EPA-certified wood stove, and sit back to enjoy the smoke-free spread of heat in your room. Catalyst Wood Burning Stove is available in different colors and can be bought for US$4,995 at MF Fire.
