TV coverage

The acts and choices made by the citizens have a significant role with one of the main emission sources of black carbon, namely residential wood combustion. Therefore, the MACEB project provides information and guidance on correct ways of residential wood combustion both to the Finnish citizens in the form of public web pages, and to the municipality level authorities to help them to plan and carry out information campaigns. The residential wood combustion information campaign at Helsinki area had a good coverage at the Finnish media.
