The beauty of ‘Glo’ Eco Briquettes is that they are carbon neutral. The CO2 released in burning them has only been absorbed by growing the rape crop within the past 9-12 months. CO2 from coal was captured millions of years ago, and CO2 from hardwood logs up to 100 years ago. When these materials burn they release the CO2 back into the environment.
Great news! Stoves from leading UK stove manufacturer Portway stoves now carry independently tested CE approval to standard BS en 13240 and are so efficient and clean burning they have received DEFRA’s recommendation for exemption from the Clean Air act 1993.
