The report gives results of an initial determination of differences in emissions when burning ordinary cordwood compared to kitchen cabinet making scraps. The tests were performed in an instrumented woodstove testing laboratory on a stove that simulated units observed in use at a kitchen cabinet manufacturer's facility. Three test burns were made, using a stove made from a 55 gal. drum and a kit sold for that purpose. Test burn 1 used seasoned oak cordwood fuel, test burn 2 used particle board scraps, and test burn 3 used Formica-faced particle board scraps. The scraps for tests 2 and 3 were obtained from a kitchen cabinet manufacturer in Vermont. In general, the cordwood produced higher emissions of carbon monoxide and total hydrocarbons, while the composite woods produced higher emissions of the heavier molecular weight organic compounds. There were significant differences in burnrate between the tests, which introduced some uncertainty in interpreting the analytical results.
