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.

Under the Partnership for Clean Indoor Air, the USEPA sponsored Berkeley Air to conduct KPT trainings and studies for Partner programs in India (First Energy), Nepal (Centre for Rural Technology, Alternative Energy Promotion Center), and Peru (GIZ-EnDev, SENCICO). In-home emissions measurements of greenhouse gases and health-damaging pollutants were also made in Nepal and India.
