Abstract

The monitoring solid pollutants, moisture and gaseous emissions of wooden biomass utilized in a 30 kW stove have been performed. This paper reports a case study where the control of organic pollutants in biomass was performed by using FT-IR-ATR technology, heavy metals were measured with ED-XRF, radiation was assessed with a pocket Geiger device. Moisture content has been monitored according to the standard EN 14774-2 and exhaust emissions with a MRU Optima 7 analyzer. The analyses showed no concern about organic pollutants, heavy metals or radiation. The moisture content of some biomass specimen was found very high. The gaseous emissions varied with the use of wet biomass or different part of the tree. This work is a part of the BiQueen project funded by Fondazione Caritro.
