A New Laboratory-Scale Device for Investigating Human Health Impacts of Biomass-Fired Domestic Cookstoves
AIChE Annual Meeting

Prior research on the health impacts of cookstove smoke inhalation mainly involve case studies, and only a few have focused on in-vitro/in-vivo experiments. The aim of this project is to design a device that enables stable production of smoke, mimicking a real-life domestic three stone cooking fire. This will allow for bench testing, that can be closely compared to the exposure one would see in a rural village that relies on these methods of cooking.
