The FAA is currently involved in a project being led by Professor Don Hine of the University of New England (UNE), which is assessing the effectiveness of SmartBurn in reducing wood smoke emissions, independent of any other action taken by the user, such as correct operation of the heater. Results from a randomised field trail conducted by the UNE research team in 2008 indicate that households using the SmartBurn device emitted significantly less visible smoke than households not using the device. A paper describing this study is soon to be published in Journal of Environmental Psychology. A second intervention study assessing the combined effectiveness of SmartBurn and education in reducing smoke from heavy emitting households is currently underway.
