Real-time air monitoring empowers health improvements during research into biomass stoves & indoor air pollution

One of the world's leading research universities used a portable, real-time air monitoring system as part of an ongoing study into the impacts of household air pollution when switching from biomass to gas stoves. With the study taking place in rural Peru, the ultra-portability of the system allowed researchers to overcome challenges related to access and power from sampling equipment. Data from this study is helping researchers better understand how our choice of stove affects NO2 concentrations indoors, towards an overall goal of reducing household pollution, improving health outcomes and saving lives.
