The report gives results of a study to quantify criteria pollutants and characterize atmospheric emissions from coal-fired residential heating equipment. Flue gas was sampled from a warm air furnace and a hot water boiler which burned three western coals. Tests were conducted with the stokers operating on a 20-minute ON/40-minute OFF cycle, corresponding to high- and low-fire conditions in the fuel bed. Variations in coal composition and type of heating equipment both influenced emission rates, and the OFF portion of the heating cycle contributed significantly to total emissions. The report gives a number of correlations between emission rates and test parameters. Combustion efficiencies for coal-fired residential heating equipment were lower than for larger coal-fired systems (e.g., utility boilers), as evidenced by the higher emission levels for CO and organic species, including POMs. In contrast to previous estimates, particulate emissions were not a function of the coal ash content, but did correlate with the coal free swelling index and volatile content. The particulate composition was primarily carbon, indicating that the particles were not formed from coal ash but from carbonaceous material volatilized during combustion.
