Clean Cooking Activities
1. By mid 2013, the Department of Chemical Engineering, BUET has completed research work on 'Improving energy efficiency and emission characteristic of biomass based cookstoves' in Bangladesh under the Climate Change Trust Fund (CCTF), Ministry of Environment and Forest, Government of the People's Republic of Bangladesh. This research has been endeavored to design and develop efficient and low emitting biomass based cookstoves to meet daily cooking needs for general households in Bangladesh. Four cookstove models with chimneys have been developed and their performance has been evaluated and compared with existing ICSs in Bangladesh. Better performance has been ensured compared to existing ICSs in markets.
2. Two other projects related to (a) modification and development of existing ICSs in Bangladesh and development of ceramic based new ICSs to meet the stringent standard for Tier-2 and Tier-3 and (b) development of low cost Biochar briquetting technology from fluffy biomass are in pipeline. Probable funder will be the World Bank.
3. Research project related to Solid Residue Fuel (SRF) from municipal organic solid waste is also in pipeline. Small scale research project. Probable funder will Dhaka City Corporation.
4. Biochar from fecal sludge, a research component of ' Value at the end of the Sanitation Value Chain' -a transnational research work funded by BRAC and IRC International Water and Sanitation Centre. The research will start from December, 2013.® ® ®
Research & development of energy efficient and less polluting cookstoves and fuels and testing & evaluation of their performances.®
