This study developed and evaluated a comprehensive list of alternative strategies for controlling the ambient air quality impact of residential wood combustion (RWC) in the Pacific Northwest. Over seventy-five control strategy elements were initially evaluated, using a Keppner-Tregoe evaluation process, which included five minimum (MUST) criteria and twelve desirable (WANT) criteria. Twenty generic strategy approaches were evaluated, using available published information an extensive assumptions, to estimate their potential ability to reduce RWC particulate emissions. Based on the findings of these analyses, fifteen RWC control strategies were selected and evaluated using the Keppner-Tregoe process. Rough estimates of implementation costs were made. A matrix summary of the fifteen strategies was prepared showing their relative ranking based on all twelve WANT criteria, their estimated costs, and benefits in terms of estimated particulate emission reduction potential.
