Cleaner Fuels 2021: Coal & Wet Wood to be banned



Today the Department for Environment, Food & Rural Affairs (DEFRA) has released its long-awaited response to its consultation on using cleaner fuels for domestic burning.


As a result of this it was announced that owners of wood burners, stoves and open fires will no longer be able to buy coal or wet wood to burn in them, under a ban to be rolled out from next year. Sales of the two most polluting fuels will be phased out in England to help cut air pollution, the government says. Bags of logs sold in DIY stores, garden centres and petrol stations often contain wet wood - a type of wood which produces more pollution and smoke.


The public should move to "cleaner alternatives", the government says.

These cleaner alternatives include a range of Briquettes such as our RUF, Nestro & PIni-Kay products available for wholesale buyers.


Why are Briquettes much better than green or wet wood for burning?


Hugely popular elsewhere in Europe, briquettes are beginning to take off in the UK – and they’re good for your fireplace or stove, your pocket and the environment


Briquettes deliver around 50% more heat for each pound spent than logs. They also have strong environmental credentials as they are made from waste wood produced as part of the furniture or other wood-related businesses


Wood briquettes use the sawmill residues and compresses them under high pressure and heat to form a solid, densified highly calorific briquettes. Moisture content of a briquette can be as low as 4%, whereas green firewood may be as high as 65%. Burning a wood briquette is far more efficient than burning firewood.


Wood briquettes are much hotter, cleaner, longer burning and more economical than traditional logs.

We have a selection of products available on our website https://www.purebiofuel.co.uk/products and will have further offerings available throughout the year.


If you have any questions about wholesale supply of Briquettes, please get in touch with our team.
