Buy Compressed Sawdust Bricks for Ecological Heat
Your environmentally conscious, easy to use, economical solution to winter heating. Wood stove owners can now enjoy the ease of clean burning, high heat, low polluting fuel just like wood pellet stoves.
One pallet of our Bricks contain as much heat measured in BTU's as one cord of wood*. That's one 4'x4'x3' pallet of Bricks replacing a 4'x4'x8' stack of cordwood and at 8% moisture or less almost every BTU in them is available as heat for your home since you're not wasting heat boiling off water from the wood itself!
Like Wood Pellets, Bricks are cheaper than fuel oil, less polluting and greenhouse gas neutral, recycling the C02 that the tree absorbed in its life.
*(Typical cordwood moisture content of 21% so as far as usable BTU's go, you'll receive as much as 1.5 times as much *heat value from one pallet of this product as you would from cordwood. All the heat released during the burning process of this firewood is goes into heating your home, not boiling off the water from the wood that is in the stove waiting to burn next, plus, most cord wood you buy isn't that great these days. You'll always have your share of Poplar, Grey Birch and other low BTU value woods in your load along with wet, punky wood and grit that produces no heat at all and even consumes heat when put into a fire because it's wet.
Bricks are a CO2 neutral, renewable, environmentally friendly replacement to this popular home and industrial heating fuel. They have the size, shape and density required for a long even output of heat energy.
- Bricks turn your wood stove into something as easy to use as a pellet stove, but you don't need electricity to run it!
- The ECOBRIXs make a good alternative to pellets because they can be burned in any kind of stove.
- Using Brix you can use a clean burning fuel without having to invest in a whole new stove.
- Once you buy a pellet stove all you can burn is pellets and they require electricity for maximum efficiency!
- Bricks are fashioned after Brown Coal Bricks burned in Europe for generations.
One ton/pallet of Bricks equals 16,000,000 BTU's
Use Compressed Sawdust Bricks in
- Your wood stove
- Great for restaurants and public areas because they don't throw sparks and stay evenly lit through out the burn. Little need to poke the fire once they're lit. No smoke in the room either!
- wood furnace
- fire pit
- Great for tailgate parties too. You can cook with them and not smoke up the parking lot and it will warm you up too!
A note about these products.
Here's my input on this product.
Bricks are made from resources found here in North America.
I've used this product myself and find all the claims about the clean burning consistency and quality to be true.
These products are a clean and safe alternative to the messy dirty cord wood we're all used to and can be a real benefit to urban and suburban people who like the heat and cozy feeling they get from heating with wood but have concerns about air pollution or a neighbor with asthma that just can't handle the smoke of a regular fire. Not only that, the consistent nature of the product means you won't get into an argument with the fire wood guy about just how much is a cord and whether there's Poplar and Grey Birch hidden in the pile or not. These products are the same every time you order them.
The Bricks start best when you to kindle a fire under them just like any fire wood. Fatwood Fire Starter Sticks work the best. See them below.
Ecological Fire Bricks do best in good quality, air tight wood stoves to give you the maximum heat and efficiency possible. You can burn them in and older inefficient stove if you want to without any problem but they will burn faster than necessary since they are made from kiln dried wood fibers.
They burn good in fire pits, barbecue grills and fireplaces too if you just like to have a flame for aesthetic purposes or grilling food and they won't throw sparks into the room and burn holes in the carpet or flooring.
NEVER use starting fluids, gasoline, deisel or kerosene to start these wood products. It won't work. When the Bricks get wet they turn into a pile of sawdust that won't burn no matter what fluid gets them wet. They don't need fluid to burn.
