by Marcus Flynn

The particulate emissions from all of the masonry heaters built in the U.S. in one year (about 500) equals the emissions from about 5 outdoor boilers.  The above photo demonstrates exactly why.
Based on data from the recent NYSERDA boiler field study, and research at MHA's Lopez Labs,  
Photo is from a great U.S. Forest Service article explaining NSPS
