ONIL Stoves

Exposure to smoke from open fires within a home has been shown in several studies to be one of the leading causes of respiratory illness.

Most of the substances contained in the smoke emitted by biofuels (coal, firewood, crop residues, animal manure, etc.) can harm human health, the most important particles being: carbon monoxide, nitrous oxide, sulfur oxides (mainly in coal), formaldehyde, and polycyclic organic matter (often causing cancer).

Particles whose diameter is less than 10 microns, mainly those with a diameter less than 2.5 microns, can penetrate deep into the lung tissues and are those that cause the greatest damage to health.


Advantages and benefits:

• Reduction of up to 70% in the consumption of firewood, thus helping to conserve the forest.
• Saves time and money, as the consumption of firewood is reduced, less time is spent collecting or money to buy it.
