Globally, 2.5 billion people (40% of the world population) are dependent on solid biomass fuel to meet their daily demands for cooking and heating. Most of them utilize wood or charcoal in traditional ways causing significant impacts on the health of women, children and the environment.
World Bioenergy Association initiated a Working Group on Advanced Biomass Cooking (ABC) bringing together actors from around the world that are engaged in Advanced Biomass Cooking in one way or another. It has also recently published the website Pellets.Africa and has selected the transition to advanced biomass cooking as a focal area of engagement.
In this regard, WBA is pleased to invite you all to a new webinar series on advanced biomass cooking which starts with a webinar focused on gasification cooking technology. Companies building and marketing gasification cookstoves will present their products and experiences in the market.
