Emission reduction when using small wood pellets in pellet stoves

Against the backdrop of the increased use of pellet stoves and boilers in the small output range in the future, the aim of this project was to examine whether the previous observations on the increase in emissions from pellet furnaces are systematically related to the pellet dimensions. For this purpose, pellets with different lengths and diameters were produced in this project and systematically investigated in an exemplary pellet stove with regard to the conveying and feeding ability as well as the combustion and emission behaviour.
