Abstract International organisations, unions and countries are taking part in reduction of pollutants from different sources by setting emission limits and boundary values for pollutants such as carbon dioxide, carbon monoxide, sulfur oxides, nitrogen oxides and particulate matter. According to EU Eco-design Directive each solid fuel household boiler technology has to include electric precipitator. A fog unit is a novel flue gas treatment technology made for small capacity combustion units. First experiments have been carried out in the fog unit experimental stand and results are analysed in detail. The capacity of the fog unit reached during experiments was between 1.02kW and 3.11kW, showing increase in efficiency from 5 to 15%. Data of experiments were used in a simulation (calculation) model, made for determination of fog unit capacity. Results of the model and experiments were compared and showed strong compatibility.
