Otago Regional Council

From 1 January 2012 only woodburners meeting these standards are permitted in the Air Zone 1 towns of Alexandra, Cromwell, Clyde, and Arrowtown and in Milton:

  • All woodburners that have an emission discharge rating of 0.7g/kg of fuel burnt and an efficiency rating of not less than 65%.
  • All woodburners installed before 14 April 2007 in Alexandra, Arrowtown or Cromwell or 1 April 2009 in Clyde having an emission rate of less than 1.5g/kg of fuel burnt, and a thermal efficiency rating of not less than 65%.

The key factor is that approved new woodburners must have an emission discharge rating of less than 0.7g/kg.

A full list of approved woodburners can be viewed at www.mfe.govt.nz and the accepted EECA heating products list can be viewed at www.eeca.govt.nz.
