Comparison of Particulate Matters Properties from Combustion of Wood Biomass and Brown Coal

The combustion leads to pollution with particulate matters (PM). These emissions are considered to cause the greatest harm to human health. Particulate pollutants consist of the following substances: carbon, ammonium, metals, organic materials, nitrates and sulfates. This article deals with analysis of the particulate matters samples from wood biomass and brown coal. The analyses were carried out by elemental determinator and thermogravimetric analyzer. Thermogravimetric analyzer determines the composition of organic, inorganic, and synthetic materials. The elemental determinator is used to determine carbon, hydrogen, nitrogen and sulfur in organic matrices. Further analysis compares the size distribution of these samples. Size distribution was determined by using of vibratory sieve shaker machine. The shape of particles was observed by stereo microscope and density was also determined such as a ratio of their weight and volume. It is important to analyze chemical and physical properties of PM in order to decrease their concentration during combustion process.
