Reasons and solutions for the micro-dust problem

The utilisaton of wood for heating purposes is carbon neutral and therefore very kind to the climate. Using the biomass from local forests will assist the local industry with added value and creates local jobs.

Unfortunately, using wood for heating purposes is creating harzardous and dangerous micro-dust. Especially in winter time, layers of air mass with different temperatures can create a so called weather inversion. Therefore, micro-dust caused by wood heating systems are kept under these layers and so maximum limiting values will be exceeded. 

There is a solution for this problem. Not only to lit the fire professionally and with dry wood but also the instalment of a micro-dust filter will reduce your micro-dust emission considerably.
