Abstract

Small residential wood stoves are a well-known source to outdoor air pollution with fine particulate matter (PM2.5), ultrafine particles (PM0.1), and other key pollutants.
However, an increasing number of recent studies also document wood stoves as a significant source of indoor air pollution. Still, new wood stoves have no limits for indoor air pollution.
New technologies combining electrostatic precipitators with smoke extractors promise to reduce both outdoor and indoor air pollution from wood stoves. Studies confirm reduction in outdoor air pollution but not much documentation exist for indoor air pollution.

Purpose: To perform systematic measurements of indoor particle pollution primarily with PM0.1, but also PM2.5, from wood stoves and to investigate if electrostatic precipitators with smoke extractors reduce indoor particle pollution from wood stoves.
