Results of the first half of the air quality measurements in Wadowice image

At the end of January, a particulate matter measuring device was installed on the Wadowice market, in line with the Integrated Project “Implementation of the Air Quality Plan for the Malopolska Region – Malopolska in a healthy atmosphere”. The results of the measurements show that the air in the city during the heating season is of very bad quality. In the last week of January, the average PM10 concentration in Wadowice was 289 ug / m3.

Study of the real effects of the “top-down burning” method image

The Institute for Chemical Processing of Coal in Zabrze, having an accredited laboratory for solid fuel boilers, has measured the actual effects of the use of the top-down burning method on the emission of particulate matter and benzo (a) pyrene in the combustion of coal and wood. The study included 4 different boilers with manual fuel feed and one goat-type heater in which both coal and wood were burned. The study has shown that the “top-down” burning method has unpredictable effects on the amount of pollutant emissions.
