Cookstove Reports Available from Groundwork Institute

Test Stove PhotoGroundwork Institute recently published several reports related to wood cookstoves as part of an ultra-low-cost housing program in Southwest Cameroon. More specifically, these reports are related to one of the project’s focal areas: creating improved kitchens that are smoke free with improved cook stoves. As part of the testing and consideration process, TLUD stoves are included, but they are not the exclusive focus of these efforts.

Of particular interest is the 3 Stove Tests report. This report is an objective, third-party comparison of three types of stoves, one of which is the Champion TLUD Stove (designed by Dr TLUD and shown above in the photograph).
