House coal and wet wood being phased out

Recommended Posts


"Owners of wood burners, stoves and open fires will no longer be able to buy coal or wet wood to burn in them, under a ban to be rolled out from next year.

"Sales of the two most polluting fuels will be phased out in England to help cut air pollution, the government says.

"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."

Yes saw this.

There will still be smokeless coal. 

As for wood, there have been advise on what wood to burn for years. Some people are burning all sorts and that is not good. 

Sometimes I wonder what people are burning, cos it sure does not smell like coal or wood. :(
