This project provides households with a fuel-efficient ONIL (concrete) stove that reduces the amount of firewood required. Every ONIL stove in saves around 3 tonnes of carbon emissions per year. The project is designed to reach over 350,000 households in Guatemala over the next decade with improved cookstoves.
