GUATEMALA - INSTALLATION OF ONIL COOK STOVES
Guatemala / Uspantan - EFFICIENCY OFFER
The project involves the distribution and installation of ONIL cook Stoves for use by households in Guatemala.
The project involves the distribution and installation of ONIL cook Stoves for use by households in Guatemala. Before the adoption of the ONIL Stove, households in Guatemala used inefficient, conventional open fire. The ONIL cook Stove is a fuel-efficient stove that reduces the amount of firewood required by households by up to 58%, compared to the baseline, and results in lower emissions based on its construction. A single ONIL Stove will save 3.837 tons of CO2e per year.
By adopting the higher efficiency ONIL Stove, households reduce the quantity of fuel wood they must consume for daily cooking needs. When compared to firewood consumption of conventional open fires, the ONIL cook Stove on average reduces firewood consumption by 58 percent. Since a very high proportion of fuel wood comes from non-renewable sources, this translates directly into reduced emission reductions from non-renewable extraction of wood.
Benefits of this project:
- Decrease in lung and heart diseases in women and children. Decrease in burns in children and women./li>
- ONIL stoves reduce the amount of firewood required by households by as much as 58% compared three-stone fire./li>
- Saving roughly 4.0 tones of wood per year./li>
- Savings perceived by end user: reduction in the time spent collecting wood in the forests, more time for women to do other chores and girls to attend school./li>
- Stress burden on necks and backs (causing hernias) is greatly reduced as firewood loads are smaller.
