Carbon Footprint

Carbon Footprint

Those duraflame fire log products that are made from renewable materials produce 70% less greenhouse gas emissions than gas fireplaces. Here are the facts about renewable fuels versus fossil fuels.

Residential Wood Burning Appliances

  • Carbon dioxide produced from wood combustion is already a part of the planet’s natural carbon cycle, and therefore not considered to add to the atmospheric carbon dioxide load.


Renewable Fuel Emissions

  • Duraflame fire log products that are made from renewable materials produce 22% less carbon emissions than equivalent duration fires burned with firewood.


Fire logs vs. Natural Gas


  • Although gas fireplaces are often touted as the cleanest burning alternative to firewood due to their low fine particulate emissions, 99% of their combustion emissions ARE greenhouse gases from non-renewable fossil fuel.
  • Independent studies show that duraflame fire logs made from renewable resources produce over 70% less greenhouse gas emissions than burning equivalent duration fires with natural gas logs in a traditional vented fireplace.
