Importance of Improved Stoves
The use of this type of stove allows the combustion process to be improved, reducing the consumption of local firewood and reducing carbon emissions. At the same time, they help expel toxic smoke outside the home, drastically reducing indoor pollution and the risk of respiratory diseases.
