A 26-year-old Nigerian, Max Chinnah has made history as he has come up with innovative ideas which led to the invention of a smokeless stove which he patented with his partner, Attigah.

According to news reports, Chinnah created this smokeless stove which cooks and charges phones with the aim of helping people across the globe.

His company called Terraoak will be producing the stove on a large scale, adding that this move is meant to ensure a greener environment, reduce greenhouse effects and the threat of global warming.

The other added feature of the stove is that which enables it to convert heat energy into electrical energy and gives it out through a USB port to allow charging of phone. Chinnah said even though he wanted to be an entrepreneur, he is also very much interested in helping people.

The company is also looking forward to marketing the product to campers for outdoor recreational activities. It is looking at making arrangements to have about 1000 stoves distributed to rural Kenyan farmers.

Chinnah obtained a degree in computer science; however, he said it was the experience he had at the Clinton Global Initiative Conference in Miami that impacted his career and inspired him to follow the inventor path.

He said his strong urge to be an entrepreneur was directed to another oath where he could do something to impact positively to the lives of people. He said he wants their story to inspire people around the world so as to challenge their entrepreneurial spirits and capabilities.
