Referring to the industrial wood waste category (as relevant in the provincial furniture district of Pesaro-Urbino, Italy), this paper deals with the experimental characterization and the carrying out of lab-scale non-controlled burning tests for selected raw and primarily engineered wood residuals. The property characterization has primarily revealed the following aspects: potential influence on moisture content of local weather conditions at outdoor wood residual storage sites; generally, higher ash contents in engineered wood residuals as compared with raw wood residuals; higher energy content values in fiber-wood as compared with particle-wood typologies. The smoke qualitative analysis for non-controlled lab-scale burning tests has primarily revealed: the presence of specific organic compounds indicative of incomplete wood combustion; the presence exclusively in engineered wood burning tests of pyrroles and amines, as well as the additional presence (as compared with raw wood burning) of further phenolic and containing nitrogen compounds; the potential impact of incomplete industrial wood burning on the photochemical smog phenomenon.

Abstract

Referring to the industrial wood waste category (as relevant in the provincial furniture district of Pesaro-Urbino, Italy), this paper deals with the experimental characterization and the carrying out of lab-scale non-controlled burning tests for selected raw and primarily engineered wood residuals. The property characterization has primarily revealed the following aspects: potential influence on moisture content of local weather conditions at outdoor wood residual storage sites; generally, higher ash contents in engineered wood residuals as compared with raw wood residuals; higher energy content values in fiber-wood as compared with particle-wood typologies. The smoke qualitative analysis for non-controlled lab-scale burning tests has primarily revealed: the presence of specific organic compounds indicative of incomplete wood combustion; the presence exclusively in engineered wood burning tests of pyrroles and amines, as well as the additional presence (as compared with raw wood burning) of further phenolic and containing nitrogen compounds; the potential impact of incomplete industrial wood burning on the photochemical smog phenomenon.
