In the recent paper authored by Dr. Hynek Roubík (group leader of Biogas Research Team) and Dr. Jana Mazancová were researched biogas appliances with a focus on a flue gas analysis of biogas cook stoves.
In the recent study, using small-scale biogas plants in central Vietnam, was found that high CO emissions in flue gas are associated with low-quality biogas cook stoves and feedstock type. Furthermore, it was find out that CO2 emissions increase with the age of biogas stoves and are highest for short cooking times. In addition, Low air/gas efficiency was found for commercial cooking using household stoves. The study contributes to covering the data gap, as similar studies have not been conducted in Vietnam. The information and data gained are important for further evaluations of biogas technology in Vietnam and other developing countries.
