ECODESIGN2022: we´re at the start of a new era, and LACUNZA is ready

ECODESIGN2022: we´re at the start of a new era, and LACUNZA is ready

ECODESIGN2022, the new European directive for the ecological design of domestic biomass appliances, will be mandatory as of 1 January 2022. From that time onwards, it will be illegal to sell and install any appliance that does not comply with these regulations.

The aim of ECODESIGN2022 is to protect the environment and human health. To this end, the regulations set the parameters for the emission of harmful substances to minimum levels. These requirements are related to two aspects that have been identified as important to the environment and to health. Namely energy efficiency and emissions of particulate matter (PM), organic gaseous compounds (OGC), carbon monoxide (CO) and nitrogen oxides (NOx).

To check whether a product meets the ECODESIGN2022 regulations, take a look at the emission data which each manufacturer is legally required to publish and which must at least meet the following requirements: efficiency higher than 75%, CO emissions less than 0.12%, NOx emissions less than 200 mg/m3, OGC emissions less than 120mg/m3 and particulate matter less than 40mg/m3.

This means that the purchase of an appliance that complies with these regulations will lead to lower consumption and greater savings, while being environmentally friendly, protecting the quality of the air and human health.

LACUNZA, a company based in Navarre, Spain, with 50 years of experience in the manufacture of wood burning appliances, already offers a complete range of new generation products with the ECODESIGN2022 certification. The company has spent the last 6 years adapting already available models to be compliant, while all the products progressively brought to market already meet the requirements of these regulations.

As an example, classic models from the LACUNZA catalogue such as the LEVANTE wood burning stove, best-value stoves such as the SAGRA, or premium appliances from the catalogue such as the ITACA insert stove with a guillotine style door, have already been adapted to meet these requirements. Furthermore, LACUNZA has redesigned and improved a few details in its ITACA models, such as increasing the fire viewing window by 20% and installing quieter fans.

As José Julián Garciandia, the general manager of LACUNZA, commented, “we have a clear commitment: to care for the environment and human health and, with this aim in mind, we are already able to offer a complete range of new generation products with the ECODESIGN certification. We're Ready!”

Glossary
A-L M-Q R-Z
A
AEFECC
AEFECC is the only association that brings together manufacturers, importers and suppliers of wood burning stoves, fireplaces, cook stoves, boilers and, in general, wood burning and biomass appliances in Spain.
Airtight
Combustion occurs within a closed chamber, acquiring the necessary oxygen from the outside without altering the oxygen in the fireplace.
Atmospheric power
Heat transferred to the atmosphere.
Axial fan
This is a type of fan where both the motor and the blades are mounted directly on the shaft. When the shaft and blades rotate, it produces a current parallel to the shaft.
C
CE Power
Average power available from the device, certified in official laboratories.
Centrifugal Turbine
A centrifugal tangential fan in which air is driven by a turbine or impeller, sucking it through the centre, expelling it through its blades parallel to its axis and exiting in a perpendicular direction to achieve greater pressure / speed with less sound.
Cleaning Access
Easy access to remove soot through a hatch (patented) Easy manual disassembly of the baffles, no tools required.
Cleanout door
They are usually cast doors without glass. They are totally opaque.
Closed stove
Completed constructed modular wood burning cook stove ready for installation.
CO emissions

A value that measures emissions of carbon monoxide, an odourless, colourless, tasteless, toxic and highly flammable gas.

Conto Térmico
An Italian regulation that encourages interventions to increase energy efficiency and thermal energy production from renewable sources for small installations.
Convection
It is called convection when heat is transmitted and creates natural air circulation in any room.
D
Damper
Rotating cover that allows the passage of air/smoke through a pipe to be opened/closed
Deflector
A device used to divert the direction of the smoke flow before leaving the duct
Double Combustion
Technology whereby the gas from the firewood’s initial combustion is burned again. It provides greater efficiency and life for your firewood with lower consumption.
Double sided
These are fireplaces or wood burning stoves that have glass on the front and back of the fireplace in order to see the fire and get heat from both sides.
Ducting
Channelling of air through ducts
E
Easy Fire Control
Fire control system that can regulate the optimal combustion and cleaning of the firewood appliance with one simple remote control device.
Easy To Clean
Surface treatment of the wood burning cook stoves with a high-quality enamel. Makes cleaning easy with as little as a damp cloth.
Ecodesign 2022
A European regulation (compliance with which is mandatory starting in 2022) that will require greater energy efficiency in all products and lower emissions of CO, OGC, NOx and other types of hitherto uncontrolled pollutant gases.
Ecolabel

A European certification related to energy consumption. It grades the product based on strict sustainable criteria defined at European level and ensures that the purchased product meets the maximum sustainability requirements

Energy efficiency
This consists in the efficient use of energy. We refer to an efficient wood burning appliance when it consumes less energy than the average energy required to make it work.
Eolo System
High pressure ventilation system with centrifugal turbines and speed regulator (switchboard) to allow different rooms of the home to be heated through ducts.
External Air Inlet
Connectible system that takes air from outside the house for combustion. Suitable for low consumption housing.
Extra Clean Glass
Novel air intake system on the glass to keep it clean for longer.
F
Fan

An instrument or apparatus with rotating blades that drives or removes air.

Flamme Verte
Flamme Verte is a quality label for wood burning appliances in France. To obtain the Flamme Verte label, the energy and environmental performance of each device is controlled in laboratories, accredited against ISO / IEC 17025 and notified by the European Commission, whose tests give access to the CE certification.
Flow Driving
Hot air bypass system with selectable outlet. It allows for longer ducts and makes it possible to close the air outlet. Includes a turbine control unit.
G
Guillotine opening
A sliding door opening that pulls up and can stay hidden
H
Hatch
Entrance that provides access to clean the cook stove, wood burning stove or fireplace.
