Testing in the Laboratory
Tests were conducted in several different ways. Here are some key results:
Maximum firepower: 10.6 kW (36,000 Btus). For comparison, a standard gas burner produces 9,000 to 11,000 Btus.
Fastest cooking: 12 minutes to boil 5 liters (1.3 gallons) of water
Able to burn dried cow dung at high firepower with no other biomass needed to maintain the fire
Efficiency as high as 32.3%, and emissions on par with market-leading stoves (see below for details)
