Emission scenarios and air quality modelling for residential wood combustion: Impact analysis of measures for small wood burning appliances in Denmark and effect on transport of black carbon to the Arctic

Publikation: Bog/antologi/afhandling/rapportRapportRådgivningpeer review


In the project, the emission impacts for particulate matter (TSP, PM10 and PM2.5) and black carbon (BC) of three scenarios for residential wood combustion have been
estimated and the impacts of the concentrations of BC have been modelled over Denmark and the Arctic using the Danish Eulerian Hemispheric Model (DEHM). Additionally, the modelled concentrations have been compared to the measurement results. The overall greenhouse gas effect of residential wood burning in Denmark has been estimated considering the pollutants where the IPCC Fifth Assessment Report provides global warming potentials (CH4, N2O, NOx, VOC and BC). The basic scenario have been compared to three scenarios which includes banning older wood stoves in areas with district heating, installing particle filters on stoves and boilers not being ecolabelled and requiring older stoves to be scrapped or replaced when a property is sold.
