3 billion people still burn wood, straw, and other biomass for cooking and heating their homes. Biomass fuels are often expensive and the indoor air pollution caused by smoke leads to respiratory diseases.
Electric cooktops, biogas produced from livestock manure, and LPG (liquefied petroleum gas) are safer and cleaner alternatives to wood and other biomass fuels. Modern cooking fuels are increasingly affordable and, in some cases, free.
Among the billions of people still cooking with wood and other biomass, women and children are disproportionately affected by the high air particulate levels inside these homes. Clean and modern cooking fuels contribute to better air quality, reduced risk of disease, and increased economic mobility. Access to modern cooking fuels is one of the most significant challenges facing our world today!
