    Greening wood energy to mitigate climate change

    In western Ethiopia, near the border of war-torn South Sudan, Anygo Okal must prepare food for her family of 18 people, three times a day. To do this, she must hunt for firewood in the woods outside her village. Improved cookstoves, which concentrate the heat and reduce the smoke of burning wood, offer an alternative for communities to sustainably use their forest resources. In Finland, waste residue from the pulp-making process is being turned into biodiesel. Available at filling stations for people to refuel their cars, this biodiesel burns cleaner than petroleum diesel.
