Modern woodburning stoves are part of the solution, not part of the problem.

Modern woodburning stoves are part of the solution, not part of the problem

We want to make something clear:

1) The government wants to limit pollution from woodburning, not limit woodburners.

2) More than 80% of the wood smoke pollution in London was found to come from burning wood on open fires. This will be the same, or more so, right across the country.

3) Here is a graphic that illustrates the difference in smoke from an open fire, an old stove and an Ecodesign ready stove

4) So the problem of pollution from wood smoke would virtually disappear if open fires were replaced by Ecodesign ready stoves. Which tells us that modern woodburning stoves are part of the solution not part of the problem.

And let us also not forget that:

5) Heating your house using sustainably sourced wood is a positive step in the battle to reduce global warming.
