With the aim of reducing the risk caused by smoke from open fires used for cooking to the human health, the PCIA (The Partnership for clean Indoor that actually is known as the Global Alliance for Clean Cookstoves, GACC) emerged as a result of the World Summit on Sustainable Development in 2002. In Bolivia, the CPC was created through the EndDev-Bolivia project as a research and assessment institu
The present study uses and compares different international regulations to evaluate the efficiency of box-type solar cookstoves such as the ones for local use and diffusion, as well as the ones for international commercial use. Tests were carried out under the American norm ASAE (American Society of Agricultural and Biological Engineers Standards), in which the main calculated value is related to
The use of biomass species for energy purposes requires the knowledge of their calorific value. This project determines the heat of combustion from the most representative biomass species of Bolivia, which allows the subsequent analysis of various projects to optimize their use in energy terms, achieving a costs reduction as well as decreasing the... environmental impact caused by indoor ai
Petroleum and natural gas are cleaner and more efficient fuels than coal. Gas fuel is any gas mixture used as fuel to provide energy for domestic or industrial uses.
The project studies energy performance indicators for domestic gas kitchens, using evaluation methods based on Latin American standards, mainly using the Mexican and Argentine standards, afterwards a technical norm for gas cooking ...
The development of improved cooking stoves and their implementation in rural areas has been carried out for years to improve people's life quality who still depend on biomass as fuel for cooking their food. The indiscriminate consumption of biomass that leads to deforestation is reduced and emissions of harmful gases to human health are reduced, both as a result of uncontrolled combustion...
Portable enhanced kitchens are cooking systems that use biomass fuel (wood) to provide energy in household uses for cooking food they are small and convenient for transportation, they are also cleaner and more efficient than regular kitchens.
The development and implementation projects of improved kitchens have as one of their main tools the Bolivian Standard 83001 and International ISO.
