  1. 1. Particle emissions from residential wood and biodiesel combustion

    Författare :Robin Nyström; Christoffer Boman; Dan Boström; Markus Broström; Michael Strand; Umeå universitet; []
    Nyckelord :NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; Combustion; biomass; wood; biodiesel; particulate matter; emissions; aerosols; physicochemical properties; size distribution; PAH;

    Sammanfattning : Emissions from anthropogenic combustion sources, such as vehicles and biomass combustion, contribute significantly to ambient particulate matter (PM) both on a local and global scale. Exposure to ambient PM and air pollution in general is linked to a variety of different health effects and it has been estimated that as many as 2. LÄS MER

  2. 2. Catalytic Oxidation of Emissions from Residential Wood fired boilers

    Författare :Magnus Berg; KTH; []
    Nyckelord :biomass; wood; combustion; residential boilers; applied catalysis; catalytic oxidation; VOC; carbon monoxide;

    Sammanfattning : The European Commission has set a target of doubling theenergy supply from renewable sources from 6% in 1997 to 12% in2010. An increased usage of biofuels will play an importantrole in meeting this target. LÄS MER

  3. 3. Phenolic Antioxidants in Wood Smoke

    Författare :Jennica Kjällstrand; Chalmers University of Technology; []
    Nyckelord :smoke; benzene; methoxyphenols; antioxidants; wood; lignin; combustion; biomass;

    Sammanfattning : Smoke from residential wood burning constitutes a complex mixture of organic compounds with varying environmental and health effects. This thesis focuses on antioxidants and aromatic hydrocarbons emitted from small-scale burning. LÄS MER

  4. 4. Impact of residential wood combustion on urban air quality

    Författare :Patricia Krecl; Christer Johansson; Johan Ström; Tami Bond; Stockholms universitet; []

    Sammanfattning : Wood combustion is mainly used in cold regions as a primary or supplemental space heating source in residential areas. In several industrialized countries, there is a renewed interest in residential wood combustion (RWC) as an alternative to fossil fuel and nuclear power consumption. LÄS MER

  5. 5. Emissions from realistic operation of residential wood pellets heating systems

    Författare :Kaung Myat Win; Rebei Bel Fdhila; Tomas Persson; Erik Dahlquist; Henrik Thunman; Mälardalens högskola; []
    Nyckelord :ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Wood pellet; Heating; Combustion; boiler; stove; emissions; particulate matter; Energy- and Environmental Engineering; energi- och miljöteknik; SWX-Energi; Integrerade system för sol och biobränsle;

    Sammanfattning : Emissions from residential combustion appliances vary significantly depending on the firing behaviours and combustion conditions, in addition to combustion technologies and fuel quality. Although wood pellet combustion in residential heating boilers is efficient, the combustion conditions during start-up and stop phases are not optimal and produce significantly high emissions such as carbon monoxide and hydrocarbon from incomplete combustion.
