The Institute of Industrial Research (IIR) is one of the leading 13 Research Institutes of Ghana’s Council for Scientific and Industrial Research (CSIR), the main Science and Technology Research and Development Institution of Ghana. The CSIR-IIR is Ghana’s foremost industrial research and development organization.


CSIR-IIR Laboratory Facilities


“Addressing Challenges in Cookstoves Efficiency & Emission in West Africa beyond”.

CSIR-IIR has a complete set-up of the Laboratory Emission Measurement System (LEMS) for testing of cookstoves. The set-up can be used for testing stoves, Water Boiling test (WBT), Controlling Cooking Test (CCT), Kitchen Performance Test (KPT) etc.
Result that come out of the LMES set-up with respect to emission are the measurement of carbon monoxide (CO), Carbon dioxide (CO2) and Particulate Matter (PM) content during cooking.
Results obtained for stove tested could be used to grade them interns of tiers, as stipulate by the International Workshop Agreement (IWA).

We offer the following tests:

  • Thermal Efficiency of stoves
  • Cookstove Emission
  • Fuel Testing
