The stove emissions test results speak for themselves.
Ecodesign Ready Stoves are significantly cleaner burning
Independent research conducted by Kiwa Gastec on behalf of the SIA has shown that modern clean burning stoves, designed to meet the new Ecodesign requirements, will significantly reduce emissions compared to an open fire and a stove of 10 years ago.
The stove emissions tests covered the emission of particles, organic gaseous compounds (OGC) and NOx from an open fire, a stove from 10 years ago and a stove designed to meet the stringent emission levels in Ecodesign. The results are summarised in the graphs below:
