Students from the University of Utah present their improved biomass cook stove for rural communities in Nepal. The improved stove will reduce harmful emissions and wood consumption, which will in turn improve indoor air quality, reduce harmful health effects from inefficient combustion, and reduce burdens on women and children who most often gather fuel wood and are in the home during meal preparation. The project is funded through the US Environmental Protection Agency’s P3 (People, Planet, Prosperity) Student Design Competition for Sustainability which funds student projects that benefit people, promote prosperity and protect the planet by designing solutions that move us towards a sustainable future.
