Quantifying the health impacts of the ACE-1 advanced biomass and biogas clean cooking solutions in Cambodia
This study is a collaboration between SNV and Berkeley Air Monitoring Group to improve access to clean cook stoves for impoverished communities in Cambodia that rely on solid fuels to meet household energy needs. This project also supported the development of a standardized methodology for estimating averted premature death and disability (e.g. averted Disability Adjusted […]
The Lao Clean Stove Initiative is part of the East Asia and Pacific Clean Stove Initiative (EAP CSI), a World Bank initiative under the Asia Sustainable and Alternative Energy program (ASTAE) to improve access to clean cooking and heating stoves for poor, primarily rural households that will continue to rely on solid fuels in the future.
With funding from the Shell Foundation, Berkeley Air partnering with household energy researchers at Universidad del Valle de Guatemala to conduct a field evaluation of an improved plancha stove in Honduras.
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 is providing consulting to Portland State University on designing and implementing health-based evaluations of cookstoves as well as on measuring household air pollution and exposure for a pilot on water treatment kits and improved cookstoves.

The World Health Organization (WHO) is currently developing the WHO Indoor Air Quality Guidelines for Household Fuel Combustion.
Berkeley Air collected field data and built local capacity for a study titled Evaluation Of Acceptability And Sustainability Of Improved Stoves And Their Impact On Indoor Air Quality And Child Health In Rural Western Kenya, led by investigators from CDC and WHO.
