IEA Bioenergy Webinar: Residential Wood Combustion - Towards Low Emission Systems

06. May 2021
Online, AT

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

Content Description

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.

IEA Bioenergy invites you to participate in this free international webinar.

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 (Verenum Research, Switzerland)
  • Technical guidelines for design of low emission stoves
    Morten Gottlieb Warming-Jespersen (Danish Technological Institute, Denmark)
  • Real life test methods for log wood stoves and pellet stoves
    Dr. Gabriel Reichert (Bioenergy and Sustainable Technologies, Austria)

Morten Tony Hansen (Ea Energy Analyses, Denmark), Lead of IEA Bioenergy Task 32 on Biomass Combustion, will moderate the webinar.
