Manufactured logs, typically made of compressed sawdust or other organic matter, provide a cleaner alternative to wood for open-hearth fires.
- Cleaner than wood. Manufactured logs produce up to 70% less air pollution than wood and less creosote buildup in your fireplace. The Agency has conducted emission testing of manufactured logs. Find more information about this study (PDF).
- Efficient. One log burns for 2 to 4 hours, depending on the type you select.
- Not all varieties are suitable for wood stoves and fireplace inserts - check the guidelines on the wrapper to ensure compatibility with your device.
- Cannot be used during burn bans.
