A Protocol for Black Carbon Emissions
this protocol was developed and subsequently tested in 2012-2015 by nordic test and research institutes, with danish technological institute (dti) as project manager. this protocol describes a potential standardized procedure for measurements of bc (black carbon) in terms of both ec (elemental carbon) and oc (organic carbon) from residential wood burning stoves. such a standardized test can then be used for voluntary eco-labeling of wood stoves, and by manufacturers interested in testing and developing extremely low-emission, low-black carbon, climate-friendly stoves. this testing protocol is part of a project supported by the nordic council of ministers and the climate and clean air coalition (ccac), and implemented by the international cryosphere climate initiative (icci).
