Angaza expands partnership with ATEC to include two new clean cooktops

Angaza and ATEC are growing their partnership with two new clean cooking products embedded with Angaza’s Pay-As-You-Go (PAYG) technology. These modern digital induction cooktops are part of ATEC’s eCook line of clean cooking devices that are designed to provide consumers in emerging markets with access to safe, easy, and reliable cooking solutions.

“We’re delighted to expand our existing partnership with ATEC, whose high quality PAYG biodigester devices are also available on the Angaza platform,” said Lesley Marincola, Angaza CEO. “The eCook line of cooktops will provide consumers in last-mile markets with affordable options to access clean cooking technology that reduces harmful fuel emissions and improves health and safety conditions for both households and the environment.”

ATEC has helped over 11,000 Cambodians and Bangladeshi’s gain access to modern, safe, and affordable cooking solutions. ATEC’s eCook cooktops utilize induction technology to directly heat cookware via electromagnetic fields. Compared to more traditional cooking methods that rely on highly flammable fuels, induction heating does not produce fumes that can compromise respiratory health or present a fire risk. This method of heating is highly efficient, with studies showing a 50% reduction in running costs compared to methods that utilize liquefied petroleum gas (LPG).

“Globally, 4 billion people lack access to clean, modern cooking solutions. ATEC’s mission is to be a global leader in solving this problem within the next decade,” said Ben Jeffreys, CEO at ATEC. “We’re excited to begin offering eCook devices on the Angaza platform, which will help further our goal to provide sustainable, affordable, and accessible clean cooking products to base-of-pyramid households around the globe.”  

ATEC’s eCook cooktops are embedded with Angaza’s PAYG technology for easy payment tracking and are available as double burner and single burner units. Both models are GSM enabled, which provides a streamlined user experience, and the ability for distributors to monitor electricity consumption and provide optimal after sales service.
