Pesitho awarded MECS-TRIID grant

In 2019 Pesitho was awarded the MECS Challenge Fund for Technology Research Innovation for International Development (MECS-TRIID) from Loughborough University.

Pesitho worked with Aarhus University in collecting data on the environmental and health impacts of using the ECOCA solar stove for cooking compared to traditional biomass stoves.

The research took place at the Bidbidi Refugee Settlement in Uganda with recipient families of the pilot ECOCA stoves and families who solely use solid biomass for everyday cooking.
