The EcoBriquettes and Heat Logs can be referred to as wood briquettes and can technically be described as compressed sawdust logs made from sawdust as a byproduct™. Our partner sawmills often produce wood-based materials for further production and accumulate sawdust as waste. The waste sawdust is then directed into the production of wood briquettes.
There are different manufacturing processes and engineering, hence different shapes and sizes of wood briquettes.
Kiln-dried can be referred to wood that has been controlled and mechanically dried in thermally insulated chambers to draw out the excess moisture content from the wood. As a result, kiln-dried firewood will burn more efficiently and cleaner, making it a better product than seasoned wood in wood-burning appliances.
At ECOFUEL, the quality standard for kiln-dried firewood is less than 15% moisture content for the guaranteed best burning experience.
Selecting the fuel for your first order can seem like a challenge, but it doesn’t have to be. For your peace of mind, all our products (only a handful) are designed to work in most appliances and will burn slightly different, depending on the specie of the wood or the shape and size of the briquette.
We have created the introductory to ECOFUEL™ bundle.
There is no single answer to this question. Instead, let’s take a look at the two categories of our products and look at the energy output, aesthetics, and the source of raw materials. The aesthetics of firewood is more prominent, and yes, you get that natural look of wood, but then the wood briquettes are produced from often wood that’s a bypass product at the sawmill.
Both types can generate a near equal energy output measured in kWh/kg, with wood briquettes producing slightly more energy per kWh.
We recommend storing both firewood and wood briquettes in a weatherproof and dry environment. Any direct contact with water or high humidity for a long extended period will result in the loss or reduced output of the product.
All wood briquettes should be stored indoors if possible but always in a dry space. Due to their compact nature, the logs can absorb moisture very quickly, causing them to expand and make them hard to use later.

The Pallet Delivery is designed for large and heavy orders that often require transportation in heavy trucks and can arrive with trucks with 45ft size trailers.The process looks simple in theory but can quickly turn into a disappointment if there is limited access to the property or don’t have solid flat concrete or tarmac to operate the pallet truck to move the pallet to the final destination.To speak about your delivery requirements, please contact customer support.

ECOFUEL™ is an Irish renewable fuel brand founded in 2014 and an alternative fuel to fossil fuels like coal and peat.
As part of the Tiny Changes movement, since 2019, we have eliminated over 90% of single-use plastic from our supply chains by introducing new recyclable packaging solutions and reducing the amount of plastic used in our operations.
We are searching for new ways to replace and remove single-use plastic in the remaining sections of our business and are using biodegradable plastic where possible.
Outside the products we sell, we have made many small changes in our day to day operations and improved for better how we do business. Some might look tiny, but we know we can make a massive difference on a larger scale and length of time.
In 2020 we went paperless in our internal fulfilment and deliveries operations by utilising the technology for all the processes that come to fulfilment.
We understand it’s a gradual step. Our ultimate goal is to become carbon neutral and carbon negative by optimising our operations, using new technology, and being involved in forestry projects by planting trees.
