Test Results of Cook Stove Performance

The Partnership for Clean Indoor Air is pleased to make available a new publication entitled "Test Results of Cook Stove Performance." This document was developed by Aprovecho Research Center under a grant from the Shell Foundation to provide technical support to household energy and health projects and to ensure that the projects’ designs represent the best available technical practices. Test Results of Cook Stove Performance represents a major step forward in developing an integrated approach to cook stove design. For the first time, a variety of stoves from across the world have been tested in a variety of ways and the results presented here for all to review.
