Effects of fuel moisture content on pollutant emissions from a rocket-elbow cookstove
Cookstoves have been studied in recent decades for their health- and environment-relevant emissions. Many pollutants, stoves, and burning parameters have been investigated across these studies, including fuel moisture content, which is believed to have substantial impact on stove emissions. Yet, the effects of fuel moisture content on emissions remain poorly characterized. To address this gap in knowledge, this study characterized particle and gas-phase pollutant emissions during a laboratory experiment exploring three levels of fuel moisture from a single tree sample. Moisture levels tested ...
