FINE AND ULTRA FINE PARTICLES FORMED DURING THE BIOMASS COMBUSTION IN SMALL COMBUSTION DEVICES
MetadataShow full item record
Currently, more and more emphasis is placed on improving the air quality and promoting alternative methods of household heating, including the use of biomass. Although these combustion processes are considered to be environment-friendly, the fine and ultra-fine particles are also produced in these cases, which can have a negative impact on human health. The paper presents the results of experimental biomass combustion, where the concentrations and generated particle sizes were monitored during the process. In particular, selected combustion parameters were taken into account such as temperature, amount of oxygen, etc., which have a significant influence on particle formation. The particles were sampled during the measurements with the aim to determine their morphology and chemical compositions. The gathered results are intended to be used for the design of the technical measure based on the principle of temperature stabilization, leading to reducing the concentration of fine and ultra-fine particles produced by small combustion devices.
