BURN Design Lab Awarded $120K Grant from the Washington Global Health Fund

The Washington Global Health Fund (WGHF) awarded a $120,000 grant to Washington-based BURN Design Lab (BDL), manufacturer of customized biomass stove solutions to meet the cooking needs of the developing world. The funding will be used to help develop an even lower-cost charcoal stove, making fuel-efficient stoves available over the next 10 years to 5 million more people living within the poorest, most under-developed parts of East Africa. Testing by PNNL researchers -- made available with funding through the Laboratory's Economic Development Office's Technology Assistance Program -- was instrumental to advancing product development, and included measuring the emissions from the advanced cook stove design in real time (size and concentration of particles). Members of the WGHF board selected this round of grantees based on each organization's development of a global health device ready for commercialization, and on their job creation in Washington State. Read more...
