Aprovecho Research Center has been a leader in Appropriate Technology and particularly designing and testing improved wood-burning stoves for the past 4 decades. In this introductory class you will learn the basics of improved stove design and testing and construct a simple rocket stove made out of recycled cans that is ideal for camping and backpacking. Basic stove testing protocols will also be taught enabling the students to evaluate designs in the future they may encounter. All aspects of improved stove evaluation will be covered including thermal efficiency, emissions, global warming potential, and black carbon.
