The 1991-92 field performance of 11 woodburning stoves in and around Crested Butte, CO, was evaluated. Measurements included particulate matter (PM), carbon monoxide (CO), total unburned hydrocarbons (THC), and weekly average burn rates. The monitored stoves included EPA-certified catalytic stoves and EPA-certified noncatalytic stoves. The main emphasis of the continuing study is to characterize the emissions of EPA-certified stoves as they age with normal use. The emissions of a previously monitored Phase II noncatalytic stove appeared to be unchanged when variations in field moisture content and burn rate were taken into account. A second Phase II noncatalytic stove also performed at the emission levels which has been observed for noncatalytic stoves in previous monitoring.
