Sustainable Product Development
Over the last number of years the Fuels business has focused on growing and developing its sustainable convenience and eco-fuels range, which includes eco-friendly wood logs, kindling, firelighters and wood pellets.
One of the core objectives of the Fuels business is to increase the range and market penetration of its sustainable heating products.
The Fuels business currently has a range of eco-products including:
• eco-friendly wood logs
• eco-friendly firelighters
• eco-friendly wood pellets
• FireMagic Fire Maker
FireMagic Fire Maker
The FireMagic Fire Maker innovatively combines wax-coated recycled paper and cardboard which is compressed into a box shape. Fuels are then placed on top of this and once ignite, a complete fire is guaranteed each time. One of the strong innovative features of the FireMagic Fire Maker is that it does not contain any kerosene or chemicals.
Progress has also been made in the past year on our first biomass briquette which is a biomass/peat blend of 40% biomass and 60% peat. This biomass blend briquette is currently being trialled, with consumer and market response being monitored.
