Very long winded question about Trevor Baylis Eco stove? Answered
Years ago I saw a documentary about an African country which most villages and towns use bottled gas to cook.
One guy had made a stove from an empty gas container that split water, using a car battery, into a usable flammable gas.
It was very basic; the electrodes were nails and the amount of electricity it used was minute, (shown by a very dim bulb in part of the circuit); it worked very well, just like a normal gas stove.
The guy had been kidnapped three times and his family threatened by the people who make their living from selling gas.
Here was Trevor Baylis, (The man who, in 1991, saw a programme about the spread of Aids in Africa and set about developing the wind-up radio), with the guy using the stove to make a meal.
Trevor Baylis was going to take this project on and allow everyone to have a very cheap and eco -friendly cooking fuel.
I can't seem to find any info on it using Google....So my question is: Did this ever happen?
