Characterization and control of terpene emissions in Finnish sawmills

Characterization and control of terpene emissions in Finnish sawmills

Aihaj 62(2): 172-175

Terpene emission rates in Finnish sawmills were studied during sawing and processing of fresh pine (Pinus sylvestris) and spruce (Picea abies). Total terpene emission was determined by obtaining the sum of the product of the exhaust air flow rate and the mean concentration in the exhaust. Terpene concentrations were measured at fixed sampling points between the sawing lines. Terpene emission during pine sawing was around 10 times greater than emission during spruce sawing.
