Dissemination of TLUD improved cook stoves in the Sundarbans, India, 2nd project(ID: 103000000006285)
The primary mission of the project is the replacement of traditional mud stoves which cause environmental degradation, emission of smoke and greenhouse gases by the introduction of improved cook stoves (TLUD Gasifier Biomass Cookstove) in the Sundarbans, West Bengal. TLUD stoves allow for efficient, comfortable and very clean cooking. Moreover, charcoal is generated in the cooking process. The project collects this charcoal from TLUD users and sells it to users of concentional charcoal, generating income for TLUD users and allowing for additional emission reductions.
