|WHO sets new benchmarks for cookstove emissions
Released in November, the new standards for cleaner, more efficient cookstoves and fuel will likely create a tremendous and much needed shift towards truly clean, liquid stoves and fuel like ethanol.
â€œWe need to scale up the use of clean fuels such as biogas, ethanol, or natural or liquefied petroleum gas with appropriate venting, as well as solar electricity solutions for lighting. And clean technologies and fuels should be priced within reach of the lowest-income households.â€
