Reduced Emission from Solid Fuel Stoves
The Clean Stove is a project aimed at reducing harmful emissions from standard solid fuel burning stoves. The integration of control technology and innovative pollution control techniques allows traditional stove technology to be brought into the 21st century.
Main Objectives of Project
The home heating sector has seen a significant increase in technological advances in recent years. These advances have primarily been focused on control systems which look to maximise efficiency whilst maintaining a comfortable temperature for inhabitants. The efficiency of solid fuel stoves have improved over recent years but they are still significantly below those fired by gas or oil. The Clean Stove seeks to bring traditional solid fuel burning stoves in line with other domestic heating systems through the clever integration of control technology.
The key work packages of the project include:
- Research – requirements elicitation and gathering; focusing on safety, end-user technology interaction and current & future regulations.
- Design – through numerical simulations, an optimal design can be put through fabrication.
- Fabrication – the final product prototype model will be custom built.
- Testing & Validation – the project aims to validate the results generated from the numerical analysis.
