Economic Crisis and Energy Mix: Societal and Health Impact of Biomass and Wood Burning

18:00 – 20:00
Central Auditorium International Hellenic University


The economic crisis has resulted in serious levels of air pollution in major cities in Greece given that high prices of domestic heating oil as well as other conventional fuels has brought about not only an increased use of fireplaces but also the burning of cheaper wood/biomass materials during the winter. The speakers will present and provide insights into the serious impact on public health and assess ways of alleviating the deterioration in air quality.
