Aprovecho and ProBECtakes second prize in the Ashden
Awards for, in the words of the judging panel, "helping
to spread the adoption of an innovative, clean-burning stove technology
across the region through the stimulation of local enterprise".
Aprovecho and ProBEC have designed and promoted a series of
locally-adapted fuel efficient stoves for use in large institutions
such as schools, hospitals, orphanages and prisons which radically cut
the use of fuel wood. This is crucial in a region suffering from severe
deforestation. (low-res version
