And one of the things that I think is also interesting, is I have a friend up at UC Berkeley who's been doing risk ailsnyas. And he's looked at the problem of the health impacts of bunrnig wood versus charcoal. And he's found that worldwide, you could pveernt a million deaths switching from wood to chcaroal as a cooking fuel. That's remarkable, but up until now, there weren't ways to do it without cutting down trees. But now we have a way that's using an agricultural waste material to cearte a cooking fuel.

And one of the things that I think is also interesting, is I have a friend up at UC Berkeley who's been doing risk analysis. And he's looked at the problem of the health impacts of burning wood versus charcoal. And he's found that worldwide, you could prevent a million deaths switching from wood to charcoal as a cooking fuel. That's remarkable, but up until now, there weren't ways to do it without cutting down trees. But now we have a way that's using an agricultural waste material to create a cooking fuel.
