    Press Release
    MF Fire Announces Catalyst™: The First Smart, Ultra-Clean Wood Stove

    Now accepting pre-orders for Catalyst following successful beta program
    Hyattsville, MD: MF Fire today opened official pre-orders for Catalyst, the first smart, ultra-clean wood
    stove. Catalyst uses a smart controller to continuously optimize combustion, providing the perfect burn every
    time while allowing users to precisely adjust their fire from their smart phones.
    Catalyst is based on technology originally developed in the University of Maryland, Fire Lab. MF Fire
    Founders Ryan Fisher and Taylor Myers began work on the project as graduate researchers with advisor
    and material flammability expert Prof. Stoliarov. The team developed an automated wood stove for the
    Alliance for Green Heat’s Wood Stove Design Challenge. The stove, originally called Mulciber, won the Low
    Emissions prize in that competition in 2013, and the Grand Prize in 2014, measuring just 0.2 grams per hour
    of particulate matter, or soot; less smoke than a single cigarette.

    "We are incredibly excited to open pre-orders for the Catalyst. We think this is really going to change how
    people look at wood burning. It doesn’t need to be dirty, it doesn’t need to be hard. Wood is an inexpensive,
    local, and renewable fuel source, and we want to open it up to everyone.” Taylor Myers, co-founder and
    CTO noted. “We’ve had the most positive feedback about the app. The precise control at the touch of a
    button really appeals to the wood stove users we have talked to.”

    MF Fire anticipates being able to fulfill the first several hundred orders received this year, pending their initial
    EPA certification.
