Briquettes or ecologs also known as heatlogs, are the cheapest way to heat your house when using a log burner or open fire.
When you buy logs, you buy by volume i.e. bags or trailer loads, so you never know how much you are getting. This is because you are buying gaps in bags and moisture so all loads weigh different.
Ecologs are sold by weight (20kgs bags £10 per bag) because there is no moisture, just all wood.
Delivered free in Poole, Bournemouth area, minimum order 5 bags (£50
1 ton of ecologs is equal to around 4-6 ton bags of logs in volume.
National delivery to all mainland UK (excluding Scottish Highlands)

Easy to use, light and clean to handle.
Convenient 20kg sealed, water proof bags for easy storage, easy to move and not dumped in a pile on your drive as with bulk log orders which you then have to move.
WHY USE BRIQUETTES OVER LOGS OR COAL
THEY ARE CHEAPER THAN COAL OR LOGS WHEN YOU COMPARE HEAT OUTPUT, SO YOU USE LESS
THEY BURN CLEANER SO LESS SOOT IN CHIMNEY
CLEANER GLASS ON WOOD BURNER
CLEANER TO HANDLE
LESS ASH, NO SPITTING OR SPARKS
TAKES UP LESS SPACE THAN LOGS
CAN BE USED WITH LOGS OR COAL TO REDUCE HEATING COSTS
YOU WILL NEED LESS KINDLING AS THEY A VERY EASY TO LIGHT
TRY A FEW BAGS AT FIRST IF NOT SURE AND SEE THE DIFFERENCE
WHERE TO BURN BRIQUETTES/ECOLOGS:
WOOD BURNERS/ OPEN FIRES/STOVES/ BOILERS/ CHIMINEAS
MADE FROM 100% RECYCLED MATERIALS
LEAVES MINIMAL ASH AND WHAT IS LEFT CAN BE
USED AS A FERTILISER
BURNS FOR A LONGER TIME THAN LOGS OR COAL
GREAT ALTERNATIVE TO MORE EXPENSIVE FUELS
SMALLER AMOUNTS NEEDED IN THE FIRE AS IS HOTTER THAN WITH LOGS
Sawdust, which is a waste product of the wood processing industry, is kiln dried and compressed into a block by a briquette press. As the sawdust is compressed, the lignin in the wood acts as a natural glue and binds the briquette together. There are no additives at all and that makes briquettes a natural and green product.
As the sawdust from which they are made is dry (on average 10% wood moisture content or less) it will burn well, leaving your wood burner window clear and clean with no build ups of soot.
We regard briquettes as the wood fuel of the future as they are easy and convenient to handle, as well as being carbon neutral.
Wood briquettes are suitable for stoves, open fires and solid fuel heating systems as well as solid fuel cookers. They are also cheaper than your average firewood, when comparing like for like.
Heating with briquettes is cheaper than with firewood or coal. When comparing the prices for firewood logs and briquettes it is most important that you compare like with like. Briquettes, as they are a consistently dry wood fuel, are sold by weight. Firewood with a varying content of moisture, is sold by volume (a "tonne" bag This tonne bag filled with logs actually only contains about a quarter of a tonne in weight. You would need to buy about 4 tonne bags of firewood logs to equal one tonne of briquettes. You still wouldn't have the same heat value, as briquettes burn hotter, being dryer than your average firewood. To make up for that you would need to buy another tonne bag of logs.
When heating your wood burner with briquettes you will find that the window stays clean and so will the flue pipe. Far less soot and tar as this usually results from burning firewood that is too wet. They also don't spark or spit and are therefore ideal.
Briquettes have a constant heat output of about 5 kW/kg. Grown hardwood has about 4 kW/kg which is reduced to about 2 kW/kg when the logs are damp.
Briquettes are manufactured from dried sawdust and other forestry waste and by products. Briquettes are a renewable source of energy. No trees are being felled in order to produce our briquettes. Briquettes are carbon neutral and the little ash that is left can be used as fertilizer in your garden.
Others areas please ask but the more you buy the cheaper delivery.
