High quality wood and low emissions are the key to increasing the use of timber as a fuel, which is what the EU’s Quality Wood project is all about. Solutions that offer higher combustion efficiency and fewer emissions can be applied not only to new installations; older equipment can achieve similar results by adopting good firing practices. The project partners are ADEME (France), ApE (Slovenia), A.E.A. (Austria), CENER (Spain), CIS (Spain), SINTEF (Norway) and VTT (Finland), which is the project coordinator. The EU’s Quality Wood project started in 2006 and is due to run until 2009.
