Abstract: In this thesis, changing emissions of small-scale wood combustion appliances and ship engines driven by advances in combustion technology and fuel shifts from new legislation were investigated. Firstly, modern masonry heaters and pellet boilers cover emission profiles distinctly different from conventional stoves, which complicates their identification in source apportionment studies. For ship engines, new organic markers, independently from fuel use, for the identification of ships emissions in ambient air were proposed from statistical analyses of several real-world combustion emissions.
