This work aims at studying the influence of the nature of biomass fuel and its pre-treatment on both emission factors of gaseous and particulate pollutants generated by new domestic heating systems in real use conditions. Indeed, last years, domestic wood heating manufacturers have highly optimised combustion conditions, thanks to new technologies development, to respect the new European legislation proposed in 2022. Furthermore, environmental performance can be improved by modifying biomass properties (type, size, chemical composition, moisture rate, ash content …). Here, the influence of washing pretreatment process was studied on three different wood varieties: fir, beech, oak and one standard pellet (DIN CERTCO). Both untreated and washed woods were combusted in a pellet stove in order to compare the environmental impact of the wood washing process on gaseous and particulate emissions. Fuel properties have slightly changed after washing the different woods and impacts have been observed on particulate and gaseous (NOx, CO, PAH) emissions from washed fuels.
