- “Eco” coal that burns hot – is there such a thing ?
So I usually burn “the good stuff” i.e. std black coal in the multi-fuel stove – and once it gets going you have to throttle it back otherwise the room gets way too hot. But in a bid to be more greener I’ve tried some of the eco coal – but they just don’t really produce that much heat – never have to throttle back – I’d say probably get <50% of heat compared with proper coal. So, is there such a thing as eco coal that actually burns properly hot?Posted 2 weeks agopaul0Member
Stuff like this probably? Mixture of coal and ‘renewable materials’…. I had assumed this was wood, but just looked at the COSHH sheet and it’s actually Olive Stone and Molasses!!.
Blurb says it burns hotter, and that’s my experience from using it in an open fire, as long as you put enough in (small fire doesn’t seem to work very well, just burns very slowly)

Partially burnt wood transported for hundreds of miles by truck. Very eco.
As opposed to actual coal that comes from.. Russia?
Where my Dad’s family live you (recently) used to be able to get anthracite from the Tower colliery, people were part paid in it then they would sell it on. Closed now tho.Posted 2 weeks ago
