Evaluation methods

Ecozoom indicates that they use the standard laboratory test conducted for cookstoves – the 5-liter Water Boiling Test (WBT). The WBT is a laboratory-based test that can be used to measure how efficiently a stove uses fuel to heat water in a cooking pot and the quantity of emissions produced while cooking. This test can be used to evaluate stove changes during development, compare the effectiveness of different designs, select the most promising products for field trials, and ensure that manufactured stoves meet intended performance. Ecozoom also follows a 5-step design process before introducing stoves into developing markets to ensure adoption. EcoZoom conducted field testing of the Jet in Kenya for 15 months.
