An important source of atmospheric particulate matter PM10 and PM2.5 in urban areas, especially in the winter period comes from burning firewood for individual house heating. In this regard, indicative measurements have been carried out on the mass concentration of the particles PM10 and PM2.5 in the urban areas of Bitola. The measurements were carried out at three locations in the city, out of which the first is placed on the upper suburb area, the second in the downtown area (center) and the third at the lower suburb area of the city. Measurement locations were selected to be away from industrial pollutants, in the urban city area, in order to avoid industry’s influence. Measurements were made in the months of October and November 2016 and February and March 2017. The results derived from the measurements shows that the concentration of PM10 and PM2.5 emissions increased several times, compared to non-heating season period, as a result of firewood burning. Tabular and graphical displays of the same are part of this paper.
