Wet wood to be banned

Under a ban to be rolled out next year, owners of wood burners, stoves and open fires will no longer be able to buy house coal or wet wood.  Earlier this year the government announced that the two most polluting fuels used in domestic wood burners,  namely house coal and wet wood are to be phased out in England by February 2021 to help cut air pollution.  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.

Officials said the phase-out will give the public and suppliers time to use up stocks and move to cleaner alternatives, such as dry wood and manufactured solid fuels. These alternatives produce less smoke and pollution, and are cheaper and more efficient to burn, the government added. Wood briquettes, made from compressed dry sawdust and/or wood chips, are one example of an alternative fuel.  Blazers fuel products are registered as “ready to burn” which means they already comply with the upcoming regulations.

Blazer’s Wood Fuel Logs give a lovely natural flame in your open fire or wood burning stove, and give off a tremendous amount of heat and produce less tar, which will mean you will have a cleaner chimney. Blazer’s Premium Wood fuel logs are also friendly to your pets. If they are not keen on coal spitting or cracking they will love our fuel logs as they give off no sparks or spitting. The family dog will be happy falling asleep in front of the fire. Blazers are also very clean to handle unlike coal, they can also be broken much more easily than logs, and are suitable for all sizes of fireplace grates, stove fires and range type ovens.
