Mayor: the wood-burning Stoves must be away from the cities

wood-burning Stoves pollute the air. Therefore municipalities could prohibit the setting up of new furnaces, says Frank Jensen (S).

Stoves do not belong in cities. They pollute too much and heats up in homes that already have climate-friendly district heating.

It takes the Copenhagen lord mayor, Frank Jensen (S).

therefore He calls on the politicians in the Danish parliament to introduce a law which makes it possible for municipalities to prohibit the setting up of the new stoves in homes with district heating.

- I think most believe that it is unreasonable to particulate pollution from wood-burning stoves is similar to the al partikelforening from transport in Copenhagen, while we have climate-friendly district heating in 99 percent of all houses in Copenhagen, says Frank Jensen.

the lord Mayor also proposes that people should receive more money, if they stand with their wood-burning stove.

today you can get 2000 dollars to scrap its wood-burning stove. It should according to Frank Jensen raised to around 5000 crowns.

at the same time, should you subsequently not be able to put a new wood-burning stove up, if one receives the so-called skrotpræmie.

wood stoves must be gone, because they pollute the air. According to the city of Copenhagen is the wood-burning stoves at the national level account for about 70 percent of all particle pollution.

the Council for Green Transition support for the proposal. According to the organization it is close to hitting the nail on the head.

- the Proposal hits almost all the right parameters, if you must put a stop to the pollution from wood-burning stoves, says Kåre Press-Kristensen is a senior adviser in the Council for Green Transition, to DR.

Copenhagen overborgmesters desire are not quite equally warm reception from the politicians at Christiansborg.

Miljøordfører with the Social democrats, Mette Gjerskov, will not say directly what she think about to give the local authorities act to prohibit the setting up of the new stoves.

the Government is about to make a proposal for a new law on the just stoves. The bill will, according to the miljøordføreren be published before the summer.

- It (Frank Jensen's proposal, red.) must be one of the considerations we have. We work hard to find the right solutions to get reduced particle pollution from wood-burning stoves, says Mette Gjerskov.

the Liberal party miljøordfører, Jacob Jensen, believes that the proposal is wrong. Instead, it must focus on the removal of old stoves, he believes.

There is according to the city of Copenhagen about 16,000 stoves in Copenhagen. Many of them are according to the municipality in the home, which already have district heating.
