Design of Low Emission Wood Stoves – Technical guidelines

Oct 2022

Wood stoves are popular as a primary or complimentary heat source. However, unwanted byproducts are formed and emitted during combustion of wood logs. These emissions continue to be a concern for the environment and for public health.

Correct operation and proper design are key to minimize harmful emissions. While both are equally important, the guidelines in this report focus on technological measures (e.g., stove design, flue gas cleaning and automatic control systems).
