Abstract

The purpose of this research project is to show that common grills produce too much carbon dioxide and little heat power compared to the pyrolysis oven. The hypothesis of this project will be that pyrolysis ovens can outperform common grills in power and CO2 emissions. Methods used in this research project were that all four ovens were burned at the same time as they reached the apex of their burn. As they reached this, an infrared thermometer was used to get the celsius and a carbon dioxide monitor was used to get the carbon dioxide readings of each oven and compare each piece of data. The results show some pyrolysis ovens are cleaner than common grills, but all pyrolysis ovens are more powerful than common grills. The data shows that we can use pyrolysis ovens instead of common grills and pursue a new, cleaner way of cooking and heating up homes. The conclusion shows that the hypothesis is supported that they are outperforming, but some pyrolysis ovens aren't as clean compared to others, but they do show this can help us move to a greener way of cooking. The implications show we can change the old ways and implement new ways that are cleaner and safer for our future generations and the environment. Future work of this research project will include all three pyrolysis ovens and directly compare them to the Common grill and compare each pyrolysis oven to one another to see which one is the best.
