Abstract

This project tested an afterburner attached to a barbecue grill to see if it would reduce the emissions coming from the grill. A cone calorimeter measured the levels of CO, CO, and O in the exhaust stream. Running the afterburner decreased the levels of CO and CO and increased the level of O above running the grill alone. Thus, dilution is as important as further combustion in reducing emission levels.
