Consequently, there is a shortage of firewood in these areas beca use trees do not grow at the same rate as they are consumed. Some authors report that 90% of the heat from firewood is lost during combustion. Several alternatives to open pit fires exist to reduce the amount of firewood used.

This project compared the time efficiency and volume of firewood used in the Finlandia style improved stoves, Josefina stoves, and ...
