In the frame of the project AIRUSE, the University of Aveiro ministered two complementary short courses on biomass combustion and sampling of emission from this source. These topics are related to Action B.4. (Determination of the impact of biomass burning) of AIRUSE, in which the Portuguese institution plays a leading role. These short courses, of practical character, addressed the following aspects: modelling of biomass combustion processes, mass and energy balances, combustion technologies, domestic applications, emission control technologies, sampling probes, calibration of gas analysers, particulate matter samplers and other instruments, isokinetic sampling, sample conditioning, and calculation of emission factors.
