Healthy smoke hoods

What this site can do for you

Getting rid of cooking smoke from the kitchen is an important factor in improving the health and quality of life of millions of people worldwide who use polluting solid fuels on rudimentary stoves to cook food for their families.

A  Smoke Hood is one way to solve this problem. Smoke Hoods draw the smoke from a traditional fire or an improved stove out of the house, making the indoor air much cleaner and safer for the cook and her family. This website provides a tool to help you to find the most appropriate and sustainable smoke hood design to meet your needs.

This tool will produce a downloadable technical brief for any individual or organization intending to implement projects to alleviate indoor air pollution, for entrepreneurs who are keen to start a smoke hood local business, and for individuals who want to manufacture their own smoke hood. Please type in the information requested on size of pots etc. and print off the design which has been customised for you.
