Straw logs are a fairly new type of green fuel which is certainly beginning to catch on especially amongst those who have wood-burning and multifuel stoves. In simple terms these are logs which are made from straw which is often left in fields to decompose. This is yet another exciting and environmentally friendly way of effectively “recycling” left over elements of various farm crops.
Aside from the fact that straw logs are extremely environmentally friendly they also have the shortest plantation to fuel route which can be anywhere up to one year. When you compare this very quick procedure against up to 150 years for wood and coal (and the Co2 emissions associated with this extended growth period) it is not difficult to see why more and more people are now looking towards straw logs. It is also interesting to learn that the CO2 emissions released into the atmosphere from straw which is left to decompose in the field is exactly the same as that from straw which is used to create straw logs and burnt on stoves and fires across the UK.
When you also take into account the fact that straw logs can be used in conjunction with any other type of fuel, they are relatively cheap, highly sustainable and environmentally friendly it is no surprise to learn that interest continues to grow. The ability to effectively create a new type of fuel from a by-product associated with wheat, oil seed rape and peas grown for food cannot be underestimated. This is a new era of eco-friendly fuel and the very fact that the same level of CO2 emissions are released into the atmosphere whether the product is burnt or left to decompose in the field is worth noting.
