What parameters must be met by stoves, fireplaces and solid fuel stoves? Legislation in the Czech Republic and Europe – situation in 2017

16.10.2017 | Ing. Jiří Horák, Ph.D., Ing. Lubomír Martiník, Ing. Kamil Krpec, Ph.D., Ing. Petr Kubesa, VŠB-TU Ostrava, Výzkumné energetické centrum, Ing. Jiří Dvořák, Milan Holomek, Ing. Stanislav Buchta, Strojírenský zkušební ústav, s.p., BRNO,
Because of the emission of pollutants during the combustion of solid fuels in local household heaters (fireplaces and stoves) tightening requirements (emissions and efficiency) are gradually adopted in individual EU countries. The requirements are mainly aimed at manufacturers or importers of incinerators who have to prove their fulfillment when placed on the market. This is a different approach than hot-water boilers, where requirements are targeted not only on manufacturers and importers, but also on operators. This partly changes for the Czech Republic, where the Air Protection Act also introduces obligations for local furnace operators with a hot-water coil (part of the heat is supplied to the heating water from the source). The aim of this article is to provide an overview of valid and planned requirements and also to compare them.

Health safety of drinking water products (current requirements in the Czech Republic)

16.10.2017 | MUDr. František Kožíšek, CSc.
No foreign certificate can be used to verify the product for contact with drinking water in the Czech Republic. A foreign protocol on the leach test is sufficient if it is obvious that it is identical to the test specified in the Decree No. 409/2005 Coll.

16.10.2017 | Ing. Michal Kloiber, prof. Ing. Miloš Drdácký, DrSc., dr. h., Ústav teoretické a aplikované mechaniky AV ČR, Centrum excelence Telč
The paper discusses approaches to safety assessment of historic timber structures using testing of very small specimens extracted from a historic structure or by direct in-situ testing. The presented methods must to take into account conditions given by the EN 16085. They further consider environmental influences and correlations of characteristics achieved by various SDTs.
