Cima (Italian Society of Environmental Medicine) has been interested in publishing data on the risks of using stoves and fireplaces. Based on the calculations made, it will appear that “…in Italy traditional open stoves emit 3679 tons of Pm10 into the atmosphere every year, 2401 tons in closed fireplaces. On the other hand, wood burning stoves emit 2651 tons of PM10”. Just as confirmed by Cima President Alessandro Miani.
The president also spoke about the dangers of the materials emitted from the stoves, describing them as extremely dangerous to the environment and thus to human health. Suffice it to say that among the main substances emitted from stoves and wood-burning stoves, in addition to fine particles, polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAHs), substances classified as carcinogenic by the International Institute for Cancer Research, will also be emitted into the atmosphere.
