The present work aims to investigate the performance of three different biomass stoves fed with coconut shell briquettes. The stoves' performance is evaluated in terms of fuel consumption rates, firepower, thermal efficiency, and pollutant emissions of C.O. and CO2 using the Chinese Water Boiling Test (WBT) method. The clay stove (stove B) has the best performance compared to the concrete stove (stove A) and the metallic stove (stove C). The thermal efficiency of the clay stove is the highest among the threes. The stove A, B, and C's thermal efficiencies are 14.77%, 17.33%, and 14.88%, respectively. On the other hand, the fuel consumption rate and CO/CO2 emission are the lowest in the clay stove. The fuel consumption rate of 0.54 kg/h and the CO/CO2 emission of 0.11 is observed in the clay stove.
