Smokeless Coal buying guide: How do our different products burn
What is smokeless fuel & how is it made?
Smokeless fuels typically have a base of Anthracite, this is a naturally occurring rock that can be used alone or with a combination of other materials to produce smokeless fuel ovals.
The process begins by drying out the rock and breaking it down into a fine dust. The finer the dust, the easier it is to compress into a strong briquette. The dust is then combined with binders (starch, clay, molasses and gum) and compressed. The shape of the briquette is down to the manufacturer. The fuel is then delivered to us and bagged on site.
