Title: Countering creosote and fumes in wood stoves

Abstract

As wood stoves can pollute the air and fires can be caused by creosote buildup, companies are making products which help to solve these problems. These firms include a company which makes a liquid catalyst spray which minimizes the emission of polluting particles while preventing creosote buildup and another whose product aids the combustion of soot and forms a shield on chimney and stove surfaces against corrosive combustion products. Some stove makers have their own method for reducing emissions by incorporating a catalytic combustor.
