Inventory report on aerosols from small scale biomass combustion devices

The objectives of the present study is to review available data on emission factors of particulate emissions from biomass combustion and measurement techniques applied to characterise particle emissions from biomass combustion. Priority is given to wood fuels used in residential wood combustion and in district heating plants. To enable a comparison of different data, the sampling and measurement techniques shall be documented and differences due to different sampling or analysis shall be discussed. Furthermore, the influence of combustion type, fuel parameters and different operation conditions on PM emissions shall be identified.
