The Danish stove industry is known for sleek, vertical, expensive stoves. There is a joke that they are made to look like high end furniture that happens to hold a fire. But amidst this new wave of modern design is an industry that embraces innovation, competes worldwide to heat homes and has many budget line models.
Danish stove makers tend to be skeptical of catalysts, very comfortable testing with cordwood, committed to quality and adaptable to the preferences and requirements of different countries. Danish stove manufacturers also have their own EPA-approved test lab at the Danish Technological Institute, one of three European labs that are now approved for EPA certification testing.
