The primary energy consumption world-wide is rising constantly. Therefore it is necessary to open up renewable resources for energy production. Besides wood, the application of agricultural resources and residuals for energy production is possible, also within the range of small scale combustion units. These fuels still pose a challenge, concerning gaseous and particulate emissions. This work examines the application of straw pellets in a small scale combustion unit. Gaseous and particulate emissions, as well as the separation eciency of a secondary heat exchanger with scrubber were investigated. Compared with wood-like fuels a strong slagging of the combustion chamber could be determined. Gaseous emissions as NOx, SO2 and HCl, as well as the emission of particles were clearly higher than with combustions of wood. The gaseous emissions were below the considered limit value for other biogenous fuels after Art. 15 a B-VG 2007 . The burnout of the gaseous phase, which can be evaluated by the emission of CO, was always good and comparable with the combustion of wood.
Using a secondary heat exchanger with scrubber (Hydrocube R of the company Schräder ) particulate emissions could be reduced by 20%. Element analysis of the particulate emissions as well as particle size measurements showed that primarily large particles were separated. A retrot of the Hydrocube R by an ionizing electrode increased the degree of separation on 60%. Besides the separation of particles, the Hydrocube R also reduced gaseous emissions like SO2 and HCl. The absorption of these components in the condensate phase caused a decrease of the pH value. Low ph value increased the corrosion of the Hydrocube R , what could be detected by rising concentrations on Fe, Ni and Cr in the condensate.
