How to characterize emission factors?
Tami Bond, Bond Research Group, University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign February 2006

How to characterize emission factors? Short story:

- For traditional stoves, we have some, they vary a lot, and we don't always know why they vary. It's probably a combination of wood, moisture, and practice, and who knows what else.

The Guatemala Stove Project
Tom Clarke

The Guatemala Stove Project (GSP) is a small group of North American volunteers that began working in response to a request for help from CEDEC, an indigenous non-profit group working in Guatemala's Altiplano (Western Highlands). CEDEC had identified the need for masonry cookstoves in the communities they serve, but residents lacked the human and material resources to build such stoves for themselves. The Guatemala Stove Project has been born out of this need.

Since those first six stoves in 1999, the GSP has expanded rapidly, building 25 stoves in 2000, 1995 in 2001, 535 in 2002. In the spring of 2003 the thousandth stove was built and now we have built over 3000 stoves.
