Combustion phenomena in biomass gasifier cookstoves
Approximately 2.8 billion people (~40% of the global population) rely on solid fuels, such as wood, charcoal, agricultural residues, and coal, for cooking. Exposure to emissions resulting from incomplete combustion of solid fuels leads to many adverse health impacts. These health impacts have motivated the development of solid-fuel cookstoves that reduce user exposure to carbon monoxide (CO) and fine particulate matter (PM2.5). In recent years, rating systems and emission rate targets for solid-fuel cookstove performance have been proposed. The aspirational targets included in these systems ...
