Field Measurements of Particulate Matter Emissions at Small-Scale Biomass Furnaces

N. Woltersdorf & A. Kather
As the German energy policy promotes the development of biomass as primary energy source, the total number of small scale furnaces in Germany has significantly increased in the past 10 years. This leads to a higher overall pollutant emission contribution by these facilities. The amendment in 2010 of the 1st German Federal Immission Protection Ordinance (BImSchV) reflects this development. As most furnaces are tested just under laboratory conditions, their range of emissions under service conditions...
