Is your firewood Ready to Burn?
Woodsure is a not-for-profit organisation, striving to raise the quality of woodfuel in the industry. The Woodsure certification scheme and its logo shows woodfuel users the suppliers and products that they can trust.
‘Ready to Burn’
Harrington Woodfuel Co. Ltd. are the first in the West Midlands to be accredited by Woodsure & Ready to Burn and have been since 2017.
Woodsure, the UK’s woodfuel accreditation scheme has launched a new initiative for firewood and wood briquette suppliers.
Following recent publicity around poor air quality and linking this to the increased use of wood burning stoves, Government has questioned whether casual consumers buying small retail bags of woodfuel realise the wood they are burning may not be suitable for immediate use. The burning of freshly cut or unseasoned wet wood contribute significantly to high levels of particulate emissions. Conversely burning dry wood has significant and demonstrable benefits in greatly reduced emissions.
Burning dry wood on modern stoves can further significantly reduces the amount of particle emissions and improve air quality compared to burn wet wood on open fires.
