The paper deals with gaseous emissions generated in biomass combustion in water boilers. It provides results of analyses of gaseous emissions and boiler efficiency in combustion of branches of apple trees from spring pruning, spruce cuttings and corn cobs obtained from kernel harvest. Measurements were done in laboratory conditions. Average CO emission values observed in combustion were from 334.7 to 650.18 mg/m3 and average NOx emission values were low, between 50.1 and 157.2 mg/m3. Boiler efficiency in applewood combustion was lower – this was caused by its higher moisture.Keywords:
