Procedures and Limits Regarding the Determination of the Separation Efficiency of Particle Precipitators for Small Scale Biomass Furnaces

T. Ulbricht & J. Von Sonntag
While combustion of biomass is a climate­friendly means to keep a house warm, emissions have to be considered. With the improvements shown by e.g. Diesel particle filters, particulate matter emissions (PME) of small scale solid biofuel furnaces has come into the focus of public attention. Particle precipitators are an obvious remedy. In order to foster the installation of these devices, standards have to be agreed on regarding their evaluation. The legal background, a proposal for...
