Biomass stoves in dwellings: interplay between fuel use and technology

Ricardo Luis Teles de Carvalho

Research output: Contribution to conference without publisher/journalConference abstract for conferenceResearch


This presentation will focus on the aspects regarding the usage of residential wood-burning stoves in Europe, including the growing adoption of pellet stove technologies in Mediterranean regions. Some results from research work carried out in Denmark, Norway, Portugal and Spain will be presented and analyzed in this session. Experimental results regarding the performance of biomass combustion stoves and the effects of real-life practices in terms of thermal efficiency, particulate and gaseous emissions will be addressed. This research is based on the development of a new testing approach that combines laboratory and field measurements established in the context of the implications of the upcoming eco-design directive. The communication will cover technical aspects concerning the operating performance of different types of biomass stoves and building envelopes, in order to map the ongoing opportunities for the development of proper interplays between advanced technologies and future buildings in the region.
