Residential Wood Combustion – Towards Low Emission Systems webinar

May 6, 2021 @ 10:00 am – 11:30 am
International Energy Association

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.

The International Energy Association will hold a Residential Wood Combustion – Towards Low Emission Systems webinar on May 6th from 10 to 11:30 am EDT.

IEA Bioenergy Task 32 gathers and disseminates essential knowledge on how to reduce emissions from small scale wood combustion while maintaining the benefits of heating homes with local renewable resources.

This webinar will present 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 will consist of the following presentations followed by a common Q&A session

  • Introduction to Biomass Combustion and Pollutant Reduction in Wood Stoves and Boilers — Prof. Dr. Thomas Nussbaumer
  • Technical Guidelines for Design of Low Emission Stoves —  Morten Gottlieb Warming-Jespersen
  • Real Life Test Methods for Log Wood Stoves and Pellet Stoves —  Dr. Gabriel Reichert
