Dr Heat Firelighters
Dr Heat Firelighters are carbon neutral firelighters. Made from UK grown Miscanthus grass which is coated in candle wax. They are 100% natural and chemical free. 100% UK made and in cardboard packaging. The colour varies from natural to red or purple, depending on the wax being used. The wax comes from a factory making candles and is a waste product that would otherwise end up in landfill. The production facility is run by solar panels. All packaging materials are 100% recyclable cardboard.
A Dr Heat Firelighter lights first time, every time and burns for about 10 minutes, which is long enough to light any well-built wood fire. Easy to light.
A clean, natural and very effective way of lighting any wood-based fire. You can use them year round to light barbecues, chimeneas, firepits and pizza ovens.
What is Miscanthus?
Miscanthus is a high yielding grass, grown specifically for energy production. Dr Heat’s crops are grown locally in Somerset and harvested in the Spring when they are naturally ripe. This reduces the need for further drying and removes the use of fossil fuels to do so.
Each tonne of Miscanthus burnt instead of coal, will prevent the emission of up to two tonnes of carbon dioxide. An additional benefit of growing Miscanthus is its ability to actively sequester carbon within the crop’s rhizomes. Miscanthus grows again each your from its extensive and expanding rhizome structure, so no need for annual planting with the associated additional carbon footprint.
Miscanthus is recognised as the number one energy crop by the biggest power producers in the UK. It is a carbon neutral replacement for coal.
