What is Ready to Burn?

The “Ready to Burn” label shows logs are ready for use as wood fuel. These logs burn more efficiently than unseasoned, green wood and reduce environmental impact.

Reduced Environmental Impact…

With open fires and wood-burning stoves becoming ever-more popular over the last decade, the upsurge in using wood as a heating fuel has also unfortunately had negative consequences.

From May 2021 the UK Air Quality Regulations now require any domestic wood fuels to contain less than 20% water content.

Woodsure is an independent quality assurance organisation responsible for certifying that any wood fuel sold for home use meets this standard.

Their Ready To Burn icon on the Hotmax bag tells you you’re using a tried and tested wood fuel that’s helping to reduce carbon pollution and mitigate climate change.

Ready to Burn logs are certified as containing no more than 20% moisture, which means less smoke, less carbon monoxide and therefore less pollution.

Ready to Burn logs & briquettes make any appliance more efficient.

Burning dry wood is part of the solution to reducing the impact on our environment.

Burning wet wood increases emissions and has a greater impact on air quality.

Any chimney will suffer from smoke produced from wet wood.
