Contents Notes
The report gives results of an evaluation, in cooperation with the State of Vermont's Agency of Environmental Conservation, of emissions generated by anthracite and bituminous coal used for residential heating. A residential coal stove was operated with both coals, while comparing high and low burn rate operations. A second stove, a commercial stove designed for wood burning but modified by the manufacturer for coal, was also tested with both coals. Combustion gases were collected by two techniques: evacuated glass bulbs and a Modified Method 5 sampling train. Volatile species were analyzed by direct gas mass spectrometry and by gas chromatography using selective detectors. Polynuclear aromatic hydrocarbons (PAHs) were analyzed by high resolution gas chromatography/mass spectrometry. High levels of particulates, total organics, and sulfur dioxide were found in the emissions from bituminous coal combustion in a residential coal stove. High PAH emissions were found with both bituminous and anthracite combustion. The stove converted from wood to coal burning proved to be highly polluting, especially when used with bituminous coal.
