Our mission: To eliminate Household Air Pollution from cooking fuel usage in Bhutan.
Dazin provides both sustainable fuel & cookstoves for households to save lives, reduce carbon emissions, and help people out of poverty in Bhutan.
Dazin is a cooperative enterprise operating under Happy Green Cooperative in Bhutan.
About 3 billion people in developing countries still use traditional fuels in open fires for cooking and heating such as firewood, charcoal and animal dung - the way it has been practiced since we discovered fire. Deadly smoke from open cooking fire kills 8 people every minute (4.3 million per year) globally, which is more than AIDS, Malaria and Tuberculosis deaths combined. (Source: WHO)
Open cooking fires causes deforestation, soil erosion and emits 65% of the total black carbon in Indian sub-continent, which is a major cause of climate change. Dazin's focus area, Bhutan has one of the highest firewood consumption per person globally.
Dazin provides free Fuel Cookies and Smokeless Stoves combined solution to rural households in exchange of forestry wood waste. This collected wood waste is densified into fuel cookies in local factory.
The efficiency of our combined solution allows us to produce fuel cookies in excess compared to the wood waste collected. These surplus fuel cookies are sold in cities to offset the free services provided in rural areas.
Dazin follows an inclusive circular economy model to provide clean, reliable and renewable fuel in Bhutan while reducing greenhouse gases and generating jobs.
