Webinar: Residential Wood Combustion – Towards Low Emission Systems
IEA Bioenergy hosted an international webinar entitled “Residential Wood Combustion – Towards Low Emission Systems”.
Wood combustion plays a large role for residential heating in many countries. However, inadequate knowledge, poor design of appliances, unrealistic test methods and poor operation of wood stoves lead to undesired and harmful consequences for air quality in many residential areas.
IEA Bioenergy Task 32 works to gather and disseminate essential knowledge on how to reduce emissions from small scale wood combustion while maintaining the benefits of heating homes with local renewable resources. The webinar presented the most recent findings from ongoing work within Task 32 on design guidelines for wood stoves and real-life test methods. The full reports will be published in the coming month. The webinar consisted of the following presentations followed by a common Q&A session:
- Introduction to biomass combustion and pollutant reduction in wood stoves and boilers, by Prof. Dr. Thomas Nussbaumer (Verenum Research, Switzerland)
- Technical guidelines for design of low emission stoves, by Morten Gottlieb Warming-Jespersen (Danish Technological Institute, Denmark)
- Real life test methods for log wood stoves and pellet stoves, by Dr. Gabriel Reichert (Bioenergy and Sustainable Technologies, Austria)
Morten Tony Hansen (Ea Energy Analyses, Denmark), Lead of IEA Bioenergy Task 32 on Biomass Combustion, moderated the webinar.
This webinar was held on Thursday, May 6, 2021 from 4:00 pm – 5:30 pm Central European Summer Time / 10:00 am – 11:30 am North American Eastern Daylight Time / 3:00 pm – 4.30 pm British Summer Time.
