Abstract

PAHs and participate matter (PM) emission were monitored for three common fuel- stove systems in Southeast Asia. Smoke samples were taken iso-kinetically from the flue pipe of a hood and analysed for PAHs using HPLC/FLD and UV. On the moisture and ash free basis, the charcoal fuel-stove system produced the least emission factor of 18 PAHs (27 mg/kg charcoal) and 1 1 genotoxic PAHs (2.6 mg/ kg) as well as the least emission rate (11 mg/h) and concentration in the smoke (50 fig/m^). As compared to the wood fue
