CSU Researchers Work on Pollution Issues

December 8, 2010

Ovens, ranges, microwaves...all these are common in Colorado homes. Worldwide, most food gets heated over portable cookstoves that burn wood, dung or straw, often inefficiently, generating smoke that can lead to deadly respiratory disease. The United States has recently signed on to help clean up this pollution. Some leaders in solving the problem are at Colorado State University in the Engines and Energy Conversion Lab. KRCC's Shelley Schlender has this profile of some of the people and the work they do for cook stoves and other pollution control efforts.
