AERMOD Evaluation of Outdoor Wood Boiler Stack Height

A cost-benefit analysis of a pellet boiler with electrostatic precipitator versus conventional biomass technology…

2017/7/1 · Data from stack testing at a high school in Vermont, a similarly-sized boiler, were used as the basis for estimating wood chip-fired stoker boiler emissions (Rector et al., 2013). For the wood chip-fired boiler, the measured emission factor of 0.28 lb/MMBTU resulted in an hourly emission rate of 2.68 lb/h during peak load and 2.04 lb/h during reduced load.
