Reduction of Fine Particle Emissions from Small-Scale Wood Combustion by Use of Electrostatic Precipitation

A. Bologa, H.-R. Paur, H. Seifert & K. Woletz
The small-scale wood combustion is responsible for emissions of fine particles. Last time quite a lot is done in development of compact gas cleaning systems, especially electrostatic precipitators (ESP). The purpose of the article is to discuss the development of a novel space-charge electrostatic precipitator (SCEP) for small-scale wood combustion. A new approach is applied to ensure long-term stable and effective operation of the SCSP. The electrostatic precipitator can be installed between the chimney and...
