Title: Optimizing the Use of Biofuels in Cook Stoves for Improved Indoor Air Quality and Forest Sustainability in Rural Nepal

Today rural Nepali communities use open fires for cooking and heating their homes. This method contributes locally to poor indoor air quality and nationally to deforestation at the rate of 560 acres per day. University of Utah students are designing a cookstove specifically for rural Nepal that burns local fuels more efficiently with less pollution. In addition, they are providing support for local production and maintenance of the cookstove.

Challenge Area(s): Cook Stoves
