Rene Nunez’s Turbo-cooker “has won an environmental prize from the UN, funding from the Fondo Iniciativa para las Americas El Salvador (FIAES) and has received a US patent for his invention.”  This recognition will allow Nunez to proceed with manufacturing the cooker and aid much of the world’s poorest in cooking in less toxic conditions. 

 According to Nunez, the Turbo-cooker burns efficiently “reducing the amount of fuel which is needed by over 95%.  That is 95% less deforestation, less greenhouse gases and less toxins in the living space of women and children around the world.”
