  • It’s Probably OK to Store Wood Pellets Inside

    first_imgResearchers have concluded that homeowners who store wood pellets inside their homes are not risking unhealthy levels of carbon monoxide.Summing up the findings of the University of New Hampshire study, Biomass magazine said that the issue had cropped up in the Northeast where a growing number of homeowners use the compressed wood pellets to heat their homes.“There has been some controversy there about whether it is okay to store pellets inside, or if it should be done in outdoor silos,” Adam Sherman, executive director of the Biomass Energy Resource Center in Burlington, Vermont, said. “It is a bit of a tricky issue, and this study could really help put this debate to rest.”Over a period of seven months, carbon monoxide (CO) concentrations were monitored in 25 houses in New Hampshire and Massachusetts. Sixteen of the homes had wood-pellet boilers and stored pellets inside in containers holding at least three tons of the fuel. Four of the houses had outdoor pellet storage, and another four used other fuel for heating. (The 25th site was a university laboratory.) Houses represented a range of styles and ages, dating anywhere from 1774 to 2013.Researchers were looking for CO concentrations of 9 parts per million (ppm) or more, the maximum indoor concentration recommended by ASHRAE, but instead found “no significant emissions.”“These results suggest that there should be no hindrance to the installation of wood pellet heating systems with indoor storage units in residences,” the April 2015 final report said.One of the study’s authors, Barbara Bernstein of the N.H. Public Utilities Commission, said that wood pellet systems have been studied in Europe where they have been used for some time. “It didn’t seem there would be much difference between what you would find in Europe and find here,” she told the magazine. Concerns from New York State agencyThe New York State Energy Research and Development Authority (NYSERDA) had been considering the merits of promoting residential biomass heating systems in the state, particularly wood pellet systems, the authors of the study said. But they were troubled by earlier reports of CO poisoning in industrial settings where wood pellets were produced, stored, and shipped.New Hampshire and Massachusetts already had rebate programs for pellet boilers, or were expected to implement them. Automatic pellet systems in New Hampshire often include gas-permeable storage containers. Yet no one knew whether the bulk storage of pellets in the basement of a house would lead to elevated levels of CO.“Since this is the first study of its kind and funds were limited, we opted to perform a preliminary assessment using off-the-shelf inexpensive CO and temperature (T) data loggers in order to obtain data from many homes, rather than using state-of-the-science technology in one or two homes,” the report says.Data was collected between December and June of 2014 so both the heating season and non-heating season were represented. The limit was set at a conservative 9 ppm (household CO alarms are typically set to go off at concentrations of 70 ppm or more).“The goal of this study was to provide data to address the question of whether stored wood pellets are in fact out-gassing CO in homes where they are stored such that indoor air quality is adversely affected. From the data set obtained, the answer is not much, if at all,” the study says.Results are based, however, on readings of the 9 ppm threshold. If air quality standards were to change — to parts per billion rather than million, for example — more testing would be needed. Also, Biomass magazine said, the study has yet to be peer-reviewed. More study would be a good ideaFatalities have occurred due to exposure to CO generated by wood pellets, including shipyard workers entering cargo holds where pellets were stored and building residents entering sealed pellet storage areas in Europe.“This isn’t an issue to be taken lightly,” Sherman said by telephone. “No one should be dismissive.”He said installers of pellet boilers have been including passive ventilation devices in the fill tubes for bulk deliveries, and that’s probably a good practice to continue even with the University of New Hampshire findings. The study sample was small, and there are a number of unknown details of pellet storage that could affect CO emissions, including the age of the pellets and the volume of the storage container. More data would be better, he said.Sherman added that NYSERDA, which contributed to the UNH study, is apparently prepared to underwrite additional research.last_img read more

  • NBA: Coach Luke Walton admits players ‘come after’ Lonzo Ball due to hype

    first_imgJapan ex-PM Nakasone who boosted ties with US dies at 101 The lackluster showing was in large part due to the stifling defense of Clippers point guard Patrick Beverley, who hounded the 19-year-old every chance he could.But even before tip-off, Lakers head coach Luke Walton knew that the UCLA product would have a huge target on his back throughout the season.FEATURED STORIESSPORTSWATCH: Drones light up sky in final leg of SEA Games torch runSPORTSSEA Games: Philippines picks up 1st win in men’s water poloSPORTSMalditas save PH from shutout“They’re going to come after him,” Walton told Bill Oram of the Orange County Register. “That’s what people in this league do. They come after young players, and when there’s young players a lot of media and a hype around them, they really come after them.”Ball, of course, has become one of the most hyped-up prospects even before he entered the NBA, mostly due to the outlandish proclamations made by his father, LaVar. The UCLA product also entered the league having his own signature shoes under the Big Baller Brand, and also starred in “Ball in the Family” reality show.Walton, meanwhile, correctly predicted that Beverley would indeed be a thorn to the side of the rookie player in his first game.“If any players are going to try to make a statement against Ball, you might expect it to be Beverley, a first-team all-defensive guard and an all-word annoyance whose own path to the NBA was a far cry from that of Ball,” he said before the game.He had also noted Ball’s ankle injury suffered in pre-season, which could impact his conditioning.  Khristian Ibarrola /raADVERTISEMENT CPP denies ‘Ka Diego’ arrest caused ‘mass panic’ among S.

MHTF is supporting their project, Using Cell Phones for Obstetric Emergencies. More information on MHTF supported projects can be found here.Written by: IHIThe Ifakara Health Institute (IHI) will seek to improve emergency care for pregnant women and newborns in Tanzania by providing free mobile phones and business-related service for mid-level health care providers, to allow better communication with senior medical staff at district headquarters. Cooperating with district councils and the ZAIN mobile telephone company, IHI will evaluate the cost, feasibility and implementation issues that arise if health workers at the district level have better access to long-distance counseling, faster referrals and resupply service and emergency clinical support.A baseline assessment will help to guide the development of the system. It includes health facility visits; interviews with health workers, TBAs, and village and district officials; focus group discussions in communities and case studies with women who have experienced a complication in the last year.Negotiations with the phone company ZAIN that began as project-specific opened a dialogue between Ifakara Health Institute and the company which resulted in a broad agreement that will also reduce the costs of communications for IHI staff.Share this: ShareEmailPrint To learn more, read:last_img read more

    first_imgFowler: Why Klopp chose Liverpool over Man Utd, Real Madridby Paul Vegas12 days agoSend to a friendShare the loveLiverpool legend Robbie Fowler has revealed why Jurgen Klopp turned down Manchester United.Klopp turned down two clubs, understood to be United and Real Madrid, after leaving Borussia Dortmund before becoming Liverpool manager four years ago. In his Mirror column, former Reds striker Robbie Fowler said: “I did an interview with him a couple of years ago and he told me he turned down a couple of super-rich clubs after Dortmund – one of them was definitely ­ Manchester United , the other probably Real Madrid – because he hated how they were focused solely on ­commercial influences.”He said he liked Liverpool because they had a balance between the money needed to reach the top and the ­history and identity of the club and their fans.” TagsTransfersAbout the authorPaul VegasShare the loveHave your saylast_img read more
