Potential air quality impacts from biomass combustion
About this report
- Biomass features within several pathways to a low carbon economy and is an increasing source of secondary domestic heat.
- Measurements and inventories suggest that particulate matter (PM) from biomass burning is on the increase.
- A range of incentives that encourage the use of biomass burning for power and heat generation could have adverse air quality impacts in particular around PM and nitrogen dioxide (NO2).
