 +
*it burns slowly
 +
*cooks fast
 +
*generates powerful heat compared to other sources of fuel found locally 
 +
*easy to store
 +
*Less toxidity

Problems related to dung as a fuel are:
 +
*there is a scarcity of dung
 +
*cattle owners do not permit collection form their fields
 +
*as dung is being dried there is a risk that it could be stolen 
 +
*It burns faster than wood when it is not properly compressed
