LANDER, WYOMING (For Immediate Release) - With the debut of the EtaPower MultiFuel backcountry stove, Primus raised eyebrows with a powerful and efficient stove that's capable of burning twice as long from a single fuel canister than average stoves on the market.
with the announcement that it will purchase carbon offsets for the
small amount of fuel not utilized directly by the stove ... Primus has
created the first 100-percent efficient backcountry stove.
stoves are a necessity for any true outdoor enthusiast. But the
majority of stoves out there are only 40% efficient, meaning the stove
only captures and utilizes 40% of the fuel used - and that's simply not
good enough," said John Smithbaker, president of North American Gear
and exclusive distributor of Primus stoves. "The new ETAPower stoves
capture and utilize the energy from 80% of the fuel used."
EtaPower MultiFuel backpacking stove blends one of the most
fuel-efficient stove designs in the world with the convenience of
omnivorous multi-fuel technology.
Able to burn any available
fuel - pressurized LP gas, white gas, diesel, kerosene, or aviation
fuel - the EtaPower MF stove so effective that less than 20% of the
heat created during combustion is wasted, in contrast to the average
rate of 60% in other stoves.
To account for the small volume
of lost fuel efficiency in the EtaPower MF, Primus will contribute a
donation for each unit sold to BaumInvest, an international carbon
offset group. For this specific project, BaumInvest will use offsets to
support the reforestation of Costa Rica.
