Europe gets natural gas from different sources in different qualities. Current domestic heating systems do not take into account, that changing qualities of natural gas have major impact on the required air volume for a complete combustion. The results are high emissions of polluting CO and NOx. Another problem concerning the gas quality is the difficult ignition of low caloric gases like hydrogen and biogas. In the new system a lambda sensor will provide a perfect combustion of the above-mentioned gases. There will be 50% reduction of the pollutant emissions. By the use of hydrogen and biogas the new boiler will provide a reduction of CO2 emissions. This domestic heating system will enable to realise a significant part of the promises made at Kyoto within a few years.
