Made from waste material, eco-logs are made from compressed wood waste such as sawdust and using a small amount of bonding agent it is compressed together to form logs, briquettes and nuggets. The base raw material has its moisture baked and compressed out of it meaning the end result is a product with an extremely low moisture content. Good quality seasoned logs usually have less than 25% moisture, kiln dried logs less than 20%, some eco-logs contain less than 5% so they burn very hot and you don’t need to use many at once to create a warm and welcoming environment.
Eco-logs are made of waste material and as such have a higher calorific content than ordinary hard or softwood. Wood waste, such as sawdust, is compressed and combined with a bonding agent to form logs, briquettes and nuggets. The low moisture content is a result of the compression and baking process, and as a result these logs burn much hotter and much longer than logs with a higher moisture contents.
Essentially the quality of the burn depends largely upon the moisture content of the wood itself, anything over 50% will make for a poor, smoky burn, this is because the energy is essentially being wasted in raising the temperature of the moisture inside the logs to create steam, which is why the smoke is thick and white. Wood with low moisture content levels however will burn hot, bright and efficiently, with a greater level of energy being released as warmth and light into the surrounding area.
