Presented by Thomas Nussbaumer
Professor for Bioenergy
Lucerne University of Applied Sciences


The webinar provides the results of an IEA Bioenergy Task 32 survey on the properties and health relevance of different particle types summarized as salts, soot, and tar from biomass combustion, and on measures to reduce the resulting emissions. The conclusions include the finding that biomass can be used as an environmentally friendly fuel, if state-of-the art combustion devices are applied and appropriately operated, while open fires and inappropriate use of biomass combustion systems need to be avoided.
