Technology Description

Ring Burner is based on Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory’s (LBNL’s) patented low-emission technology that utilizes premixed fuel and air supply, as well as a simple flame stabilizing mechanism, to evenly heat a surface with minimal pollutant formation. The team has set its sights on deploying the technology to enhance the cooking experience in residential and commercial kitchens. Energy I-Corps will help the team develop other value propositions in response to market feedback.
