As per the Government’s new Clean Air Strategy the sale and use of wet wood and coal in homes would be banned. The new plans are aimed to encourage “cleaner burning” by burning dry wood in stoves and open fires. The government Clean Air Strategy aims to reduce particulate emissions by 20% by 2020. At present the pollution caused from burning wet wood and coal in home causes 38% of particulate pollution which is very high in comparison to particulate pollution caused by industrial combustion (16%) and road transport (12%).
The new proposal is aimed to ensure that only clean dry wood with a moisture rate of less than 20% is sold. For the consumers of logs it is recommended by the government to use those supplier of dried wood which are Woodsure ‘Ready to Burn’ accredited. Ready to Burn firewood is proven to reduce the levels of emissions in the air we breathe. CoziLogs which is one of the leading supplier of kiln dried firewood is approved by Woodsure ‘Ready to Burn’ as a trusted clean dry wood supplier in the UK.
