fuelwood and dung-cake; air pollutants
The concentration of three air pollutants in indoor air during a one hour combustion period of three biofuels, i.e. fuelwood, dung-cakes and agri-residue, was monitored. A mixture of fuelwood and dung-cake (1 : 1) was also used in the study. The concentration of all three pollutants was measured at three monitoring positions. The concentration of air pollutants was found to be maximum in the kitchen at the breathing level height of a standing person.
