Quantifying the Climate, Air Quality, and Health Benefits of Improved Cookstoves: An Integrated Laboratory, Field, and Modeling Study
This study is a collaboration between Colorado State University, Carnegie Mellon University, and Berkeley Air Monitoring Group under the EPA STAR Grant for “Measurements and Modeling for Quantifying Air Quality and Climatic Impacts of Residential Biomass or Coal Combustion for Cooking, Heating, and Lighting”.
Berkeley Air performed carbon-finance project monitoring for Islan’s cookstove projects in southern Africa.
Berkeley Air and our field team implemented a baseline carbon study for Toyola Energy Limited’s charcoal coalpot stove. The study characterized fuel use patterns across Toyola’s customer base and measured fuel use to compare traditional and improved cooking technologies.
Berkeley Air conducted carbon monitoring for Katene Kadji, a stove manufacturer in Bamako, Mali. Katene Kadji is receiving carbon offsets from the sale of its improved charcoal stoves.
Berkeley Air Monitoring Group collaborated with Professor Jay Graham from George Washington University to review the usage assessment methods of a Gold Standard carbon-financed water filtration project.
