Pollution burning pellets or pellets




by sitmker » 05/11/05, 08:29

Hello,

I had found a doc on the internet explaining that heating with wood pellets was not as ecological as that. Indeed, the manufacture of these granules would pollute more than we thought.

I can't find this doc, so does anyone have any info on this?

I thank you in advance

Mathieu

Personally, I have never seen such a doc ... do you remember where you found it? Because it interests me too and we could try to find it together ...

Edit: here are 2 documents that partially answer the question

technically I do not believe it, but I could not be wrong.
in any case of ke ke I saw, the pellets are compressed, but in factories using the energy of boiler with copo of wood and sawdust, finally it pdf at the address below, it is not poorly done

I hope I have helped you, but it's true that if you find your doc I would be curious to read it

wood pollution




by Ounans » 14/06/07, 16:30

It's not just the pellets that pollute. There is also sawdust, which when it is not completely burned gives off fine particles and the simple wood which burns with very little oxygen in the inserts and releases a quantity of irritating gases: carbidesn methyl alcohol, cronolitic alcohol and amyl, ether, FORMALDEHYDE acetone, acetic, butyric, valeric acids and nitrogenous compounds of ammoniacal form. Only Canadian sites provide information on this subject. France continues to favor this highly polluting mode of heating ...

First of all, ounans, let me welcome you to the forums Econology : Mrgreen:

Yes, finally, we must put things into perspective.
First of all, France favors electric heating much more than wood heating (see the "vivrelec" advertisements).
In addition, at the pollution level, we manage, without looking far, to find much worse than wood heating.
If we compare the overall results of a wood boiler and an oil or gas, I doubt that it is the wood that pollutes the most !!!

I knew that some barks give off dioxins (the bad ones don't worry) because the barks store chlorine but then ether, acetone or ammonia? : Shock:

Where would they come from on raw wood ??? Bucheron should take a look here
: Mrgreen:

In the case of pellets obviously "we" can put "what we want" : Evil:

I found the list of gases produced by the combustion of wood in a book which was published by the French agency for energy management and which had the title: From the forest to wood heaters. it had been loaned to me by a chemist. It is of course no longer edited. Or can I send you a photocopy of the different stages of combustion?
I also get a lot of information on Canadian sites. Just type: pollution of the wood and you come across the site of the Canadian Department of Health.

Hello,

In fact this information seriously lacks comparative elements ...

We all know that everything poses a health hazard: walking with shoes pollutes since you have to make them, shoes!
From there to saying that it is necessary to drive by car instead of walking ... there is only one step which must "probably" not be taken ...

In short, yes wood releases elements unhealthy, but are the alternatives better?

Uh if it's scanned on my email or then use the link: "Add an image or a file on the forum"at the bottom of the message editing window.

Then we would have to compare these toxic releases to those of fuel oil for example ...

Wood POLLUTION




by Ounans » 22/06/07, 16:39

ALAP, an organization that fights against air pollution, considers wood to be more dangerous than fuel oil.
Read his site!
