House coal and wet wood ban
What are the new rules?
Sales of pre-packed coal that is not smokeless and has a high sulphur content will be phased out by February 2021,
The sale of loose coal that is not smokeless will end by 2023.
Sales of wet wood will be phased out from February 2021 (green wood).
This is not a banning wood or coal burning stoves, open fires or any other appliance.
Loose Coal Ban 2023 How does the 2023 ban on loose coal affect me?
You will no longer be able to purchase any house or manufactured non smokeless coal loose from 2023.
This means you will only be allowed to purchase very low sulphur content or smokeless coal after this date.
You will still however be able to burn these fuels if you have a stock of them after this date however you will not be able to purchase them.
Why have they banned coal? Coal fires and stoves are one of the biggest single source of small particle pollutants (PM2.5) which have been linked to many respiratory diseases over the years. They can emit three times the pollutants as road transport. Cutting down the use of non-smokeless coal will help better protect the environment and production of PM2.5.
What can i do to prepare? Over the next few years think about experimenting with our range of smokeless fuels to see which would better suit your appliance and needs. All of the smokeless fuels we sell are more efficient than the normal house coal and produce more heat. The only downside is the lack of a good flame which could always be fixed with a log or two.
Pre-pack Coal Ban 2021 How does the 2021 ban on pre-pack coal affect me?
You will no longer be able to purchase any house or manufactured coal from petrol stations, diy stores and all other locations if it contains a high sulphur content.
You will have February 2021 to find alternative ways of storing these products (coal bunkers and sheds) and purchase it loose coal from your local approved merchants until 2023.
As with the house coal you will still be able to burn these products after these dates however you will not be able to purchase them.
Why have they banned pre-pack coal? Basically the same reasons as the loose coal however the government has allowed less time for the changeover with these products.
What can i do to prepare? Some of our customers do not have access to storage spaces for many different reasons. Customers should investigate alternative ways of storing these products or move to the smokeless as soon as possible to avoid being caught out. Over the next few years think about experimenting with our range of smokeless fuels to see which would better suit your appliance and needs.
Wet Wood Ban How does the 2021 ban on wet wood affect me?
Wet firewood - is also known as green or unseasoned wood.
you will no longer be able to purchase this in small amounts.
All wood must have a moisture content of less than 20%
Why have they banned wet logs? These contain moisture which when burned creates far more smoke and harmful particles (PM2.5) than dry wood. Green wood can also damage chimneys by allowing large amounts of tar and soot to build up which in turn can cause fires and blocked chimneys. A quarter of all sales of wood for domestic use are from wet wood, which is usually available in small amounts and can be more convenient than dry wood but creates twice as many pollutants. We have always recommended using seasoned or kiln dried wood for your appliances as it creates far less tar, smoke and burns more efficiently.
What can i do to prepare? If you wish to order some green wood for use on fires you should be doing it soon, however we have always sold seasoned or kiln dried wood products as they have a more efficient cleaner burn and are far cleaner than green wood.
Don't panic, there is plenty of time yet and plenty of help and advice we can give you, just give us a call or speak to us when we deliver your coal.
Even if you have some coal and wood left when these bans come into effect you can still burn it.
