1 Aprovecho Research Center Began in 1976, Aprovecho consultants have assisted hundreds of projects around the world first with the Lorena and then the Rocket family of stoves working with USAID, GTZ, UNHCR, UNDP, USEPA, WFP, WHO, Shell Foundation, many NGOs, etc. We have 11 experienced consultants, and a state of the art stove laboratory. Began in 1976, Aprovecho consultants have assisted hundreds of projects around the world first with the Lorena and then the Rocket family of stoves working with USAID, GTZ, UNHCR, UNDP, USEPA, WFP, WHO, Shell Foundation, many NGOs, etc. We have 11 experienced consultants, and a state of the art stove laboratory. Developed and manufacture laboratory and in field emissions monitoring equipment to make quality testing accessible.

Started and support six Regional Testing Centers to transfer knowledge and design ability to local organizations that are in four priority countries for SEH: India, Uganda, Cambodia, Indonesia. Long history in Guatemala.

3 Stove/Health Observations Chimneys coupled to dirty wood burning heating stoves in the U.S. protect health. Chimneys are now commonly used in Guatemala and India. Chimneys coupled to dirty wood burning heating stoves in the U.S. protect health. Chimneys are now commonly used in Guatemala and India. Natural draft Top Lit Up Draft (TLUD) stoves are very clean burning. So are fan assisted stoves. Natural draft Top Lit Up Draft (TLUD) stoves are very clean burning. So are fan assisted stoves. Studies at Aprovecho and elsewhere show that increased air exchanges in kitchens dramatically reduce harmful IAP.
