Benefits of Eco-Briquettes










Briquettes are produced from pure wood chip with no additives. They have an average moisture content of 6-8% and are suitable for all wood burning appliances and due to being so dry, it provides very high heat output and a convenient source of heat for occasional burning or overnight burning on stoves

Comparison


Eco Briquettes have a moisture level of 5 to 10%.

A log that is considered to be dry has a moisture level of below 25% (ideally around 16%).


Wood that is considered to be wet has a moisture level of above 25% (typically 40% and above).

Eco briquettes come in sealed plastic bags so you know that the moisture content will be 5-10% when they are opened for use.


It is a researched fact that it takes 6 wet logs to produce the same heat into a room as 1 dry log.

Eco briquettes are pressed at a very high pressure and so are more dense than a hardwood log thus equivalent to more than six wet logs.
