Wood Heaters and Cookers

​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​In Tasmania, particle matter is a major air pollutant associated with impacts on the health of the community. Smoke generated from burning activities such as domestic wood heating often produces elevated concentrations of fine particles in the atmosphere. These particles adversely affect the health of many Tasmanians living in urban and regional population centres.​
