Dear Crispin,
I'll try to find out.
regards,
Ron

>Dear Robert and anyone who can help:
>
>The emissions are given per cubic metre. It is likely that the flue gas measurements are normalised to a certain oxygen level, for example 7% or 11%. Does anyone know what the O2 level is when reporting the CO limit, for example?
>
>The number is not meaningful unless the dilution value is known. Because of the confusion created by having in Europe a different dilution factor for each fuel I advocate that all emissions be calculated at 0% O2 (no dilution at all) because a) it is easy to calculate and b) everything is directly comparable (different fuels and stoves).
>Whatever the dilution factor is the corrected emission numbers is per M^3 seem pretty high.

>Interesting.
