Residential wood burning – environmental impact and sustainable solutions


Wood burning is a two-edged sword: If wood is used in appliances that emit a comparatively low level of particulate matter such as other heat sources, it can contribute to the transition towards renewables in the heating sector. However, residential wood burning in stoves and boilers produces substantial amounts of health and climate-damaging particles. This background paper shall give an overview on the environmental impact of wood burning and provides solution approaches.
