Ready to Burn Scheme Explained

In this article, we will provide you with a comprehensive understanding of what the Ready to Burn certificate is and why it is important.

From the 1st of May 2021 all firewood including briquettes need to be registered with Ready to Burn by law.

All briquettes certificated with Ready to Burn must been from 100% virgin feedstocks and to demonstrate this all briquettes must have a chemical analysis.

The Ready to Burn Certificate is a certification that ensures the quality and environmental standards of solid fuels, such as sawdust briquettes, that are sold in the market. This certificate is issued by authorised organisations and serves as proof that the fuel meets specific criteria for efficiency, sustainability, and low emissions.

One of the key factors that the Ready to Burn Certificate focuses on is the moisture content of the solid fuel. High moisture content in fuels can lead to inefficient burning, increased smoke emissions, and a shorter burn time. The certificate guarantees that the fuel has been properly dried to an optimal moisture level, ensuring clean and efficient combustion.

Another important aspect covered by the Ready to Burn Certificate is the ash content of the fuel. Excessive ash production can be a nuisance for users and can also indicate poor fuel quality. The certificate ensures that the fuel has been manufactured using high-quality materials, resulting in minimal ash production and easy maintenance.

Furthermore, the Ready to Burn Certificate takes into account the emissions produced during the burning process. Solid fuels that are not properly regulated can release harmful pollutants into the atmosphere, contributing to air pollution and negative health effects. The certificate guarantees that the fuel meets strict emission standards, ensuring a cleaner and healthier environment.

By choosing solid fuels that carry the Ready to Burn Certificate, customers can have confidence in the quality and environmental impact of their purchase. These certified fuels offer numerous benefits, including longer burn times, reduced smoke and ash, and a lower carbon footprint.
