Abstract
The paper presents data from an Integrated Air Cancer Project (IACP) pilot study on the total carbon, organics, and particulate emissions from oil furnaces with both gun-type and retention head burners. The data are compared to results of a similar IACP study on woodstoves conducted in Boise, Idaho, in the winter of 1986-87. The comparison shows that woodstoves produce a richer stew of organic materials and particulates, but that oil furnaces emit more soot. In addition, the chemical structures of wood and oil are discussed, and GC/MS data are presented showing how these structures result in a characteristic fingerprint when these fuels are burned.
