Abstract

We present combustion emission results from the burning of different fuels in a laboratory system designed to mimic the stoves used in Xuan Wei, a rural Chinese county that has been the focus of many studies linking high lung cancer rates with indoor coal burning. In this study, we focus on the gas and particle emissions. Variations in burning rates and emission factors are seen. These results can be used to improve emission inventories for both local air pollution studies as well as global climate effects.
