Biomass Stoves: Engineering Design, Development and Dissemination
Type: Research Report
From the introduction of this foundational book (1987) on cookstove design: "The primary intent of this book is to resolve some of the technical problems of conserving fuelwood supply. This is done by using the principles of modern engineering heat transfer to redesign traditional energy technologies. As shown, this unlikely marriage of the modern and the traditional is a powerful tool for improving the lives of the Third World's poor."
