The paper gives results of a series of 12 tests for 3 coals from a rural area of China with abnormally high lung cancer rates, a U.S. coal, and pine wood fuel. It also discusses a residential combustion simulator, built at EPA's Research Triangle Park, NC, facility to conduct emission tests of residential fuels in a facility designed for the acquisition of samples for chemical and biological analysis. The facility includes a 2.5 by 3.0 m burn hut (containing a 30 by 30 cm fire pit) located next to an instrumentation and control building. Air samples can be taken inside the burn hut or from an insulated duct pulling samples from the center of the hut through the control building. Additional sampling systems, such as continuous emission monitors or laboratory grade chemical analyzers, can be easily added either in the instrumentation building or by parking a mobile laboratory next to the facility.
