SZU‘s measures in connection with Covid-19

We are constantly monitoring and evaluating the COVID-19 situation. We have taken a number of measures to help minimize the risk of infection. We do everything we can to ensure that these measures have the least impact on the operation of our business and on running orders. Our main goal in this situation is to protect the health of our employees and customers.

Ecodesign requirements effective from 1.1.2020

     

On 13 October 2014, the EU Member States' representatives at the meeting of the Regulatory Committee adopted the Ecodesign requirements for boilers burning solid fuels (effective from 1.1.2020) and for solid fuel local space heaters (effective from 1.1.2022).

From 1.1.2020, solid fuel boilers will have to meet emission limits for Class 5 according to EN 303-5:2012.

 

BOILERS FOR SOLID FUELS

Requirements from 1.1.2020

Seasonal energy efficiency

75% for boilers with output ≤ 20 kW

77% for boilers with output > 20 kW

Particulate matter (PM)

40 mg/m3 for automatically stoked boilers

60 mg/m3 for manually stoked boilers

Organic gaseous compounds (OGC)

20 mg/m3 for automatically stoked boilers

30 mg/m3 for manually stoked boilers

Carbon monoxide (CO)

500 mg/m3 for manually stoked boilers

700 mg/m3 for manually stoked boilers

Nitrogen oxides (NOx)

200 mg/m3 for biomass boilers

350 mg/m3 for fossil fuel boilers

Note: All emission limits are expressed at O2 = 10%

 

LOCAL SPACE HEATERS FOR SOLID FUELS

Requirements from 1.1.2022

Open

Closed (+ cookers)

*) Optional method for measurement of PM content in flue gas:

HF … Heated filter

DT … Dilution channel

**) NOx emission limit for biomass/fossil fuel local heaters
