Cooking with Gas: How Children in the Developing World Benefit from Switching to LPG

If a concerted effort is made globally to improve access to clean cookstoves, between 600,000 and 1.8 million annual premature deaths from HAP may be averted. Clean fuel stoves include LPG, ethanol, methanol, natural and biogas stoves, solar stoves and electric stoves. When fully adopted, the transition to these stoves can dramatically reduce household air pollution15. LPG is currently the most viable fuel option for 15% of the world population that lacks electricity16. One of the goals of the WLPGA is to transition one billion people from solid fuels to LPG by 2030.
