2013 Jan. : NY: New report on OWB emissions was published January 2013, by the New York State Department of Health: http://www.health.ny.gov/environmental/outdoors/air/owb/docs/owb_report.pdf
From the Abstract:
“In summary, this study found evidence that OWBs can increase residential wood smoke exposures in neighborhoods, even in the absence of smoke or odor complaints. This increase is not unexpected. Woodsmoke is the largest source of carbonaceous PM2.5 in rural New York counties and emissions studies show that conventional OWBs are significant generators of fine particulates and other pollutants relative to other advanced wood-burning devices and other common home heating devices. Given the well-established adverse respiratory and cardiovascular health effects of PM2.5 exposure, and the adverse quality of life and odor issues associated with excessive smoke exposure, efforts to reduce the public’s exposure to OWB smoke are warranted.”
