While old and inefficient individual stoves and open fires are big contributors to the problem, new technologies and the use of district heating networks can now provide EU consumers with clean and efficient options that fit the requirements of the clean energy era.
We could drastically reduce emissions if consumers do both: replace old appliances and use only dry wood of the highest quality.
Ensure you obtain your firewood from regional forests with sustainable forestry. By doing that, you commit yourself to supporting the environment and set an example for sustainabilty
Optimal firewood is dried out for a year and has a humidity of 15 – 20%. Because damp/fresh firewood is much heavier than well–seasoned you will get less wood for your money.
