Check out the latest on the subject: http://forgreenheat.blogspot.com/2014/08/new-paper-undermines-stove-industry.html I think if they are going to go extreme with the emissions rating that it should be held off for the next round. That for this round of making stoves cleaner they should just set the standards to be the best level that each technology can obtain. Setting the level to one set standard looks like the end of non-cat stoves. I think there is fear that is running in the back of some industries peoples minds that wood stoves could be banned all together. So its the we have got to clean up our own act or we might not even be able to burn wood in the future. It seems like in everything in the United States the radicals make the most noise and the squeaky wheel gets the grease. I think the real issue is not the clean stoves we are currently burning but its all the smoke dragons out there still being burnt today. I think there are a higher number of smoke dragons out there than there are clean burning stoves. Thus the main objective would be to get stoves changed out with bigger incentives. Banning the more economical non-cat stoves is actually gonna make people keep their old smoke dragons even longer. You can catch a non-cat stove on sale for $600 and if we can get the government to raise their incentive from $300 to like $500 thats gonna get some people changing out those old stoves. But to tell them to change out their stoves and they need to go out and buy a $2000 to $3000 stove, I just dont think thats helping the cause. I would much rather get people burning a 4 grams emissions non-cat stove than burning a smoke dragon . To take the leap and say its vitally important to get them into a 2.0 gram stove rather than a 4.0 grams stove is to me is not a practical idea. As a 4 gram stove burns clean you cant even see smoke coming from the flue or smell anything. Its all those stoves smoking like a freight train thats getting most people bent out of shape and wanting wood burning banned completely. I am not saying ban the smoke dragons but we should promote affordable solutions for change out, as putting our money were its most effective.
