The BioLite co-founders and camping enthusiasts first met in New York City, where they bonded over an interest in sustainable design. It soon emerged that both harboured a frustration with fossil-fuel burning camping equipment and the poor global approach to energy management. There was a gap in the market for a business that would bring new technology to people who needed it the most and these guys were determined to fill it.
An engineering background and many hours creating prototypes led to the creation of the BioLite CampStove. This was a model that responded to real-world market demands in a sustainable way and began the BioLite commitment to solving the challenge of energy poverty. Today, the company has more than 20 products using innovative solutions to revolutionise the way people experience energy.
