Clean and efficient bioenergy cookstoves
The World Bioenergy Association (WBA) is pleased to announce the release of the factsheet ‘clean and efficient bioenergy cookstoves’- the tenth in the series of publications. Globally, more than 3 billion people rely on traditional use of biomass for cooking and inefficient use of fuel is leading to over 4 million deaths per year. There is an urgent need for developing clean and efficient cookstoves and fuels. Lack of capital and the lack of an integrated strategy to solve the cooking issue are hindering the development of improved cookstoves and fuels. This new factsheet details renewable fuel resources and associated stove technologies. The document focusses on solid, liquid and gaseous fuel based cookstoves along with solar based cookstoves. Combined cookstoves of solar and biomass are also considered along with important statistics on the global status of cookstoves.
