CSU researchers win award for cookstove

CSU, Envirofit International and Oak Ridge National Laboratory have been honored by the Federal Laboratory Consortium for the design of a clean-burning cookstove that aims to make life a little easier for those in the developing world.

The cookstoves program was started by Bryan Willson,a CSU engineering professor and the founder of the Engines and Energy Conversion Laboratory.

“This award recognizes the collaboration that we welcome at Colorado State that provides our students exposure to some of the top engineers in their fields and also produces hands-on solutions applicable in the real world,” said Morgan DeFoort, Willson’s co-director who helped lead a group of graduate and undergraduate students through the process of creating and disseminating the cookstoves.
