Together with AIEL, Task 32 hosted a workshop as a part of the Progetto Fuoco 2024 industry fair on wood and wood pellet stoves.

The workshop took place on Thursday February 29 at the Conference Room Pavilion 6, at Progetto Fuoco, Verona Fiere.

Recent work in Task 32 was in focus at a part of the workshop. This concerns the development of improved environmental performance of wood stoves, along with improving the design of the combustion chamber and combustion air supply, as well as on control systems and secondary emission abatement measures.

Furthermore, Task 32 has been studying test methods for type approval of stoves and suggested test methods that give a more realistic resemblance of typical stove operation. The workshop presented news on the European Eco-design directive as well as results from a recent Danish stove market surveillance.

To contribute to further reducing emission levels of stoves, Task 32 has looked further into the sustainability of wood stoves with a focus on emission of the climate forcers black carbon and methane and suggestions to minimise these emissions.

Operation and proper user behaviour are crucial to stove performance. The workshop included very exiting experiences from Austria and Germany
