It was reported in January 2007 that Alcan Technology and Management Ltd. has provided innovative solar cookers and pans to 1,000 rural Indonesian families in the country's Banda Aceh region as part of a €450,000 contribution with Klimaschutz e.V. to a Clean Development Mechanism (CDM) project aimed at preserving the environment. The parabolic solar cooker harnesses renewable solar energy, to boil water, killing bacteria and cooking food. It is intended to reduce developing region's dependence on traditional sources of energy, such as firewood and fossil fuels.
