Abstract
The paper describes tests of four woodstove operating parameters at two levels each: burn rate, wood moisture, wood load, and wood type. A half-factorial experimental test design allowed statistical evaluation of the effects of each parameter on measured emissions of polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAHs), particulates, total hydrocarbons (THCs), CO, elements, and C1-C7 hydrocarbons. The control of burn rate and wood moisture content were the most statistically significant parameters affecting organic emissions. Elemental emissions were most significantly affected by burn rate and wood type. Overall, significant changes, even reductions in total organic emissions, can be made just by the way a woodstove is operated.
