Hi All

Are there scientistic papers about the rocket mass heater like excaust polution somewhere on the internet, are
the universities who did test or laboratoria in Austria.

Past wednessday I was by the judge, because one nabure complain about the steel woodstove, that is why I plan
a rocket mass, I go design a electrostatic filter to catch fine particles, that design is far ready, did the electronic
high voltage part who is done now.

If somewhone has tests with these RMH I like to see it, so I get a idea about a RMH polution in excaust. also
a Batch rocket is welcome, looks almost the same.

Hi Kees;
I don't know of any scientific papers published. There may be something out there & I haven't heard of it.
The next best person would be Peter van den Berg, he is a master builder and owns and uses a testo meter for emissions.  He may have some documentation  that a judge might consider "scientific" evidence.

you can read this https://permies.com/t/25954/Rocket-Mass-Heater-Compliance-Code but most authorities want to see the PM 2.5 and as far as I can tell no one has measured this from a RMH yet.

This is an interesting study https://journals.plos.org/plosone/article/file?id=10.1371/journal.pone.0165529&type=printable which looks at biofuel stoves used indoor including various rocket stoves, and has some PM2.5 data but not really applicable in your case.

Thanks Graham, I go read.

Put a rocket in mine home in holland is not such a issue because a company do sell a metal woodstove with the same rocket technologie, who is certified,

So I have to call mine inshurance agent before deciding, mine home is complete stone not a wooden one like common in usa, so nothing much burnable.

I can buy a new stove with rocket technologie like in pic.

Did read, I see it get,s quite low with the PM2.5 these afrikan people has now a quite clean way of cooking with much less wood. I presume when use a more
controlled mass heater with a rizer, these are even cleaner, some say these do almost equal to gas CV type.
