Options to Reduce Smoke (Indoor Air Pollution)

HEDON (Household Energy Network) compiled a list of options to reduce smoke (to control the indoor air pollution).

Categories of options listed are
  • Reducing the need to burn fuel
  • Keeping away from the smoke
  • Venting the smoke from the cooking environment
  • Burning the fuel cleanly
  • Using an alternative fuel that is easier to burn cleanly
This is very relevant to the policy makers, with problems and solutions listed together, to implement the best possible & cost effective measure. Authors note that these classifications include a vast range of technologies and interventions, so the information is not exhaustive.
