Researchers discover higher environmental impact from cookstove emissions discover higher environmental impact from cookstove emissionsMillions of Asian families use cookstoves and often fuel them with cheap biofuels to prepare food. But the smoke emitted from these cookstoves has a definite, detrimental environmental impact, particularly in India.<img alt="" src="/news/PublishingImages/WashU%20engineers%20cookstove%20emissions.jpg?RenditionID=1" style="BORDER:0px solid;" />
