Fairlie Woodfuels is based just outside a small village called Fairlie. We have been producing and selling logs for about 10 years as a by-product of our tree surgery division. In recent years, as the tree work has increased, so too has the demand for quality firewood. Consequently Fairlie Woodfuels has evolved.
As a family run business, we have good old fashioned values. You can be assured of a first class product, delivered by polite and courteous staff, right to your door!
Our firewood is cut to size then stacked in cages to allow air drying. A summer will see the moisture content of a hard or softwood drop to 18% to 22%.
There will be a slight moisture gradient from the outside, driest, to the centre of the cage, wettest. This is very serviceable firewood and suits most fires and stoves.
Some wood stove manufacturers recommend kiln dried wood as fuel. This results in a further moisture drop to 14% to 15%. In practice lower moisture contents are achievable but not practical as the wood re-hydrates without special storage.
Biomass Suppliers List
The Biomass Suppliers List is a method which is used to provide RHI participants with a simple way to demonstrate that their fuel complies with RHI standards. Suppliers who register their fuel(s) on the List will be required to submit data for audit by the BSL Administrator. Suppliers who successfully register fuel(s) on the RHI Biomass Suppliers List will be permitted to label their compliant products with the BSL mark to illustrate that this fuel complies with RHI sustainability criteria.
