It’s almost been nine months since the official launch of the Ecodesign Ready initiative. Back in February this year there was significant coverage about what Ecodesign means for the stove industry and the environment alike. Since then, there has been a lot of focus on creating a cleaner, greener environment – with much focus being in London.
Only recently the Mayor of London called for additional powers to further limit pollution in the capital. Open fires, well know for being highly un-environmentally friendly, have come under much criticism as part of this environmental clean up. While the Ecodesign Ready initiative, by contrast is a clear ally in the pursuit a cleaner environment.
How an Ecodesign Stove is so Environmentally Friendly:
The main drive of the 2022 Ecodesign rules for wood burning stoves, is to significantly reduce unwanted emissions from the combustion of wood in domestic stove fireboxes, whilst maintaining a good thermal efficiency.
It is hard for the stove development engineer to achieve these new clean burning levels, but what exactly is needed within a firebox to produce cleaner emissions?
Here is an insight into some of the things a stove development engineer pays specific attention to, in making an ecodesign ready stove:
In summary the only way to succeed at achieving Ecodesign levels of combustion is to get the various elements of the whole system to work as one, to truly maximise the combination of fuel gases and air. It is possible to use innovations in this process such as C&J’s own patented tertiary air profiling system, used within Purevision stoves, which optimise the mixing of tertiary air into the gases above the fuel bed.
One thing we can be certain of, is that there will be continued pressure to improve the combustion process within wood burners to reduce unwanted emissions or particulates and gaseous carbon compounds. Here at Charlton & Jenrick we intend to stay at the forefront of those developments.
