The Mulciber Stove

The Mulciber Stove is a prototype wood burning stove. Designed to take local and renewable wood resources and allow people all over the world to inexpensively heat their homes.

Wood burning technology has failed to keep pace with advances seen in virtually every other energy generation technology. That is where the Mulciber Stove comes in. Using some clever engineering and a smart controller, we have made the Mulciber Stove a high efficiency, ultra clean, and easy to use wood stove.

At the first ever wood stove decathlon, in an international competition against the best wood stoves on the market or in development today, the Mulciber Stove took home the prize for lowest emissions, emitting less soot or smoke than any other stove ever measured. At 0.2 grams/hour we are 23 times cleaner than the present EPA standards and less than half the emissions of a single cigarette.


We've participated in (and won) a number of competitions:

Winner of the MIT Clean Energy Prize, Energy Efficiency Prize and the Audience Choice Award

Final Four of the ACC Clean Energy Challenge

Second Place in the RECESS Business Pitch Competition

Lowest Emissions Prize at the Wood Stove Decathlon

Graduates of NSF's DC I-Corps Lean Launchpad Program

Winner of a TEDCO Maryland Innovation Initiative Grant

Winner of the University of Maryland Celebration of Innovation and Partnerships Student Award

Nominee for the Maryland Innovator of the Year
