Wood burning: sustainable and clean?
As a renewable fuel, wood can be an alternative to heating with oil, gas and coal. But heating with wood is only a good option, if the fuel originates from a sustainable source, is burnt in an efficient way and if effective exhaust cleaning technology is applied. Thus, stoves and boilers have to become substantially cleaner and renewable alternatives such as heat pumps have to be promoted! In Europe, residential burning is the biggest source of harmful substances such as particulate matter and soot. Especially stoves and other single-room appliances are often operated improperly and wood is frequently used in a very inefficient way. Therefore, they contribute disproportionately to overall emissions.
About Clean Heat
Environmental Action Germany (DUH) and Green Transition Denmark (formerly known as Danish Ecological Council) are fighting for less pollution due to residential wood burning. Clean Heat was funded by the LIFE programme of the EU from August 2015 until December 2019. With your contribution we can continue our work for cleaner air in Europe!
