Spreading the Lytefire to empower people and decarbonize economies

 


Impact

1 Lytefire prevents 5 tons of Co2 emissions/year when used 6h / day, 210 days / year in Kenya. It’s the volume of an Olympic swimming pool, or 60m² of rainforest.

Clean Energy

Solar bread

In most countries one Lytefire 5 can bake daily 50 to 110kg of bread and 100 buns depending on the season.


300°C

Or 480°F is the temperature reached by a Lytefire 5 solar oven with direct irradiation
