Does your program aim to reduce fuel wood use and emissions from household cook stoves? Would you like to see a preview of the new PCIA publication “Test Results of Cook Stove Performance” documenting the performance of 18 widely disseminated stove models? Are you interested in learning more about building better, safer and more functional cooking systems?

If so, register today for the Partnership for Clean Indoor Air's (PCIA) Laboratory Test Results of Cook Stove Performance Webinar on January 12, 2012.

Nordica McCarty and Dean Still of Aprovecho Research Center, leading cook stove researchers, will present an overview of the laboratory test method and will share the test results of 18 household cook stoves and fuels, including wood-burning stoves with and without chimneys, wood-burning stoves with electric fans, charcoal stoves, liquid-fuel stoves and a solar cooker. The testing evaluated fuel economy, emissions, safety and cost.

Join the webinar to:

  • Understand the goals for implementing a laboratory study of stove performance;
  • Discover the most surprising findings and the biggest challenges;
  • Gain insights on the impact of stove design on stove performance to apply to your own stove program;
  • Learn how to use standard test methods; and
  • Interact with Nordica and Dean through instant polling and Q&A.
