Residential wood combustion (RWC) appliances have the high probability of incomplete combustion, producing e.g. fine particles and hazardous organic compounds. In this thesis, the fine particle number and mass emissions, particle composition and morphology, and gas emissions were investigated from the modern (MMH) and conventional masonry heaters (CMH), sauna stoves (SS) and pellet burner. The investigation was based on laboratory and field experiments applying extensive and unique particle… 

Fine Particle Emissions from Sauna Stoves: Effects of Combustion Appliance and Fuel, and Implications for the Finnish Emission Inventory

Sauna Stoves (SS) are simple wood combustion appliances used mainly in Nordic countries. They generate emissions that have an impact on air quality and climate. In this study, a new measurement


Residential combustion has been identified as one of the main sources of particulate matter (PM); fine particles are important because of their adverse effects on human health and the environment. In

Wood washing: Influence on gaseous and particulate emissions during wood combustion in a domestic pellet stove

Particulate Emissions From The Combustion Of Biomass Pellets

The combustion of biomass pellets in small-scale appliances for domestic heating is a common source of particulate matter (PM) emissions, especially in Europe. The diversification of biomass raw

Chemical characterisation of fine particles from biomass burning

Biomass burning has lately started to attract attention because there is a need to decrease the carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions from the combustion of fossil fuels. Biomass is considered as CO2

Particulate and gaseous emissions from residential pellet combustion

Seven biomass fuels were tested in an automatic pellet stove (9.5 kW) in order to determine emission factors of gaseous compounds, such as carbon monoxide (CO), nitrogen oxides (NOx) and

Almond Shells and Exhausted Olive Cake as Fuels for Biomass Domestic Boilers: Optimization, Performance and Pollutant Emissions

The combustion of two non-woody types of biomass (almond shells and exhausted olive cake) in a domestic boiler at different loads was studied in order to evaluate their suitability as fuels. To

A Review on Particle Emissions from Small Scale Biomass Combustion

Combustion of biomass fuels in small scale heating appliances is an important source of particle emissions. Majority of the particles is less than 1 µm (micrometer) and emitted directly to the

Systematic investigation of smoke emissions from packed-bed residential coal combustion devices

A review of health effects of emissions from solid fuel combustion shows clear links between morbidity and mortality, and residential combustion smoke exposure. On the interior plateau of the South

Performance, Gaseous and Particle Emissions from a Residential Pellet Stove

The objectives of this chapter are to present experimental results on performance, gaseous and particle emissions obtained from a modern bottom feed pellet stove of 2.5 kW output in part load heat
