Miscanthus Fire Logs are made from:
A UK product, Miscanthus Fire Logs are made from a type of perennial grass that grows from rizomes. Miscanthus absorbs more carbon in its lifetime than it uses, so it’s carbon neutral and very sustainable. These dense little cobs come in a variety of sizes (50mm diameter x 50 to 150mm long), but you can easily break the longer ones if needed; just tap them sharply against each other. They are not dusty and hold their shape well, so are clean to handle. They produce more ash than wood briquettes but are relatively long-burning for their size.
Two or three cobs will burn for around an hour depending on airflow.
General burning on smaller stoves.
None of our briquettes contain additives or chemicals. They are made from pure, untreated wood by-product and are held together by compression alone.

The briquetting industry uses plastic to wrap wood briquettes in order to ensure they stay dry, because damp briquettes break up and are unsuitable for burning. The environmental impact of our products is important to us, so we are constantly working with our suppliers to improve the sustainability of their packaging by using cardboard in place of plastic wherever possible.
