Since 1982, the need to pass emissions standards has dominated
design considerations related to wood-burning stove
combustion systems in North America. OMNI has
developed unique capabilities for evaluating product
designs to identify cost-effective ways to improve
emissions performance for wood-burning appliances of any kind that may encounter difficulties passing emissions standards.
Paul Tiegs has been directly
involved in wood combustion process chemistry and behavior emissions research
since 1980. In 1986, OMNI was the first laboratory
accredited by the EPA for performing wood-fired stove emissions testing.
