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 household​ 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.​
