PayGo’s phone-enabled Cylinder Smart Meter, winner of the 2017 ASME ISHOW, allows users to purchase small amounts of gas as they use it, providing a safer way to cook indoors.
“There’s about a billion households worldwide that are cooking with dirty fuels every day,” says Nick Quintong, CEO of PayGo. “Five million people die [prematurely] every year from respiratory illness that’s directly tied to cooking with dirty fuels indoors.”
