Ignite and Fight FIRE WITH FIRE – Wildfire Prevention

The All Things Wildfire podcast delves into the intricacies of addressing wildfire issues, featuring guests like Simon Weibel from Burned Bot, a Silicon Valley tech company tackling the wildfire problem. In this episode, Simon discusses how Burn Bot originated from the need to resolve challenges encountered during land treatments. The company’s journey began with a prototype dubbed the “mini burn bot,” developed in a typical Silicon Valley garage.

Burn Bot’s primary innovation is a burn chamber equipped with high-temperature torches and powerful fans. This system creates an air curtain around the chamber, enabling safe burning in areas traditionally difficult to access. What sets Burn Bot apart is its ability to reduce emissions significantly, making it possible to burn even on non-burn days while minimizing smoke output.

Highlights from the episode include:

  1. Innovative Solution: Burn Bot developed a groundbreaking technology to conduct controlled burns in challenging terrain, enhancing wildfire mitigation efforts.
  2. Environmental Friendliness: The Burn Bot system reduces emissions and minimizes smoke output, making it ecologically friendly and suitable for use even in areas sensitive to air quality concerns.
