Log Wood Combustion in Stoves - Influence on Emissions and Efficiency

C. Schön & H. Hartmann
Variable wood log sizes and different fuel masses loaded per fuel batch were applied in three different residential stoves in order to evaluate user behaviour influences on operation, which are believed to be largely responsible for a great deal of pollutant emissions and efficiency variation. Pollutant emissions carbon monoxide(CO¬) and organic gaseous carbon (OGC)¬emissions as well as total particulate matter were determined from both undiluted and diluted flue gas which were released from two chimney...
