Fine particles generated from laboratory biomass combustion are discussed in this study. The approach combines the thermogravimetric analysis during thermal decomposition of beech wood sample with detailed monitoring of the size distribution of fine particles produced. Thermogravimetric analysis (TGA) allows monitoring the exact temperature influence of a small fuel sample (wood) according to the desired schedule. The cool aerosol stream leaving TGA enters a Scanning Mobility Particle Sizer (SMPS) where the particle size fractions are separated. The monodisperse aerosol is counted by the condensation particle counter (CPC). The parametrical study was carried out to assess the influence of composition, size and surface of the wood sample on the production and size distribution of ultrafine particles
