Wood burning stoves then
Before rules and regulations entered the picture, wood burning stoves and open fireplaces caused half of the Danish particle and tar pollution. The other half was caused by traffic. Pollution from the burning of firewood was once so bad that on a calm day in a residential neighbourhood with many wood burning stoves, the air pollution would be the same as on a busy street in Copenhagen – in rush hour.
The extensive pollution was caused by lack of knowledge of good and sensible firing. A wood burning stove handled poorly will need more firewood and this way the particle emissions will increase.
You can still use your old wood burning stove and both be good to the environment and get a sustainable process. Read more about the best way to light a fire.
