Study of solid airborne particles emissions from rural boiler-house plants are insufficient. The paper presents the results of comparative analysis of dust pollution in vicinity of rural boiler-house plants in Tomsk Oblast different in parameters and fuel type (coal, gas, oil, wood) based on the study of snow cover. The results showed that value of dust load in comparison of background value in vicinity of studied coal-fired houses were different and depended on fuel consumption rate, presence of dust and gas catchment system, coal depository and vehicle park. The maximum value of dust load is found in vicinity of coal-fired boiler-house plants, where it increases the background from 2 to 16 times. In vicinity of other boiler-house plants dust load is at the background level. In vicinity of different coal-fired boiler-house plants the dust load depends on the fuel consumption, effectiveness of dust and gas collection, availability of outdoor coal storage and vehicle fleet. It is shown that natural gas and wood are the most environmentally friendly fuel from the standpoint of particulate matter emissions.
