- The problem with 'older' solid fuel burners
- Open fires and older solid fuel burners are far more polluting than ‘modern’ woodburners. Tighter emission criteria and technological advances mean that modern solid fuel burners emit considerably less suspended particulate than 'older' models. These older models are typically older than 2004, which was when the tighter emissions criteria were introduced in Canterbury. Replacement of these older woodburners, as well as open fires, will help Ashburton achieve the National Environment Standard for Air Quality.
