Improved PM Emissions Inventory For Residential Wood Combustion
J. B. Illerup & M. Nielsen

"For Denmark the revised PM2.5 emission estimates result in considerably – almost five times – higher
PM2.5 emissions compared to the latest officially reported PM emissions...The revised emission estimates
result in considerably higher PM2.5 emissions, about 9 500 tons in 2002 as compared to the 2 000 tonnes
estimated by the method used in the latest official report to UNECE. It appears that combustion of wood
is the primary emission source
(Figure 5) in spite of the limited consumption of this fuel (Figure 6).
Emission of PM2.5 from wood burning residential plants makes up a total of 85% of emission from all
stationary combustion plants in Denmark."
