Ecodesign is the European-wide programme to lower emissions. It came into force for stoves in the UK in January this year. SIA Ecodesign Ready stoves have to meet the Ecodesign requirements. The PM emissions limit for Ecodesign is 55% lower than for DEFRA exempt stoves.
Burning wood produces particulate matter (PM) but the amount produced depends on how the wood is burnt. Independent research has shown that SIA Ecodesign Ready stoves can reduce particulate emissions by 90% compared to an open fire and 80% compared to an old stove.
Both Defra and the Mayor of London are backing the installation of SIA Ecodesign Ready stoves to reduce emissions from wood burning.
In its Clean Air Strategy Defra recognises that all wood burning is not the same and that reductions in particulate emissions, (PM), can be achieved through the installation of Ecodesign Ready stoves burning Ready to Burn logs.
