Are wood pellets safe to use in my fireplace?

The pellets of EcoPellets Tasmania burn cleanly without releasing any chemical additives. This makes them safe for your fireplace or wood stove.

Burning wood pellets in a fireplace is also environmentally safe. According to the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), pellet stoves emit very low emissions due to the high density and combustion efficiency of the fuel.

Wood pellet fuel is:

  • Sustainable. Wood is a renewable resource. Burning wood pellets is environmentally friendly. Recycling wooden shipping pallets prevents waste from going to landfills. This creates an eco-friendly way to heat your home, business or commercial premises.
  • Clean burn. Burning wood pellets on a stove or fireplace is cleaner than burning rope wood. In addition, the clean burning process produces less carbon than the organic decomposition of pellets, wood products and trees.
  • All natural. Our granules do not contain any chemical additives. This eliminates the need for adhesives and other unnatural chemicals.
