Methods for particulate matter emissions reduction in wood burning cookstoves
About 3 billion people cook by burning biomass. Most use inefficient cooking technologies that lead to high levels of domestic air pollution. This results in tremendous damages to human and environmental health. For example, in 2012 the World Health Organization estimated that 4.3 million people died prematurely from illnesses attributable to inefficient household use of biomass fuels. Colorado State University's cookstove laboratory has challenged this global problem by developing technology that reduces Particulate Matter (PM) emissions by over 80% from wood burning rocket elbow cookstoves, ...
