New Task 32 report published

The report “Inventory of national strategies for reducing the impact on air quality from residential wood combustion” has now been published by Task 32, including country-related contributions from nine member countries.

Reduction of air pollution is a major societal goal, and great efforts are currently undertaken. Over the last 30 years, significant progress has been made, but wood combustion remains a significant source of air pollution in the member countries of IEA Bioenergy, particularly for carbon monoxide (CO) and particulate matter (PM)-emissions. The report compiles national approaches concerning emission reduction strategies in the field of residential wood combustion in selected IEA-member countries.
