BC CLEAR Projects 2012-2013 (funding start dates) > Lil’wat Nation Cleaner Stoves for Cleaner Air

Lil’wat Nation Cleaner Stoves for Cleaner Air

posted on 7:19 PM, July 6, 2016

Project Leader: Graham Haywood

Researchers will determine the potential air quality and health benefits of replacing old, inefficient wood-burning stoves with newer, efficient and cleaner burning ones. The study will provide real-life experience for Lil’wat university students in air quality monitoring through the environmental monitoring program at the Ts’zil Learning Centre. The research will determine the impact of a pilot woodstove replacement and communication outreach program on community understanding, receptiveness and interest in wood-stove upgrades, wood seasoning and appropriate wood-burning techniques. On a larger scale, the study will determine the economic opportunity for developing a community-based bioenergy supply operation in the Lil’wat community.

About the Fraser Basin Council

The Fraser Basin Council (FBC) is a charitable non-profit organization that brings people together to advance sustainability in the Fraser River Basin and throughout BC. Established in 1997, FBC is a collaboration of four orders of government (federal, provincial, local and First Nations) along with those from the private sector and civil society. We work with people in multiple sectors, helping them find collaborative solutions to today’s issues through a commitment to the social, economic and environmental dimensions of sustainability. Our focus is on healthy water and watersheds, action on climate change and air quality and strong, resilient communities and regions.
