Duraflame’s history of firelog innovations have enhanced the way people around the world enjoy one of mankind’s most vital discoveries.
The duraflame firelog was created after a multi-year R&D project by California Cedar Products Company. They found that they could recycle the sawdust from its wood manufacturing operations, blending it with petroleum wax to create a mixture to make a new type of fireplace fuel.
The duraflame firelog quickly revolutionized what people burned in their fireplaces. The firewood alternative struck a chord with consumers with its convenience and cleaner burning benefits compared to firewood.
Rising firelog sales sparked the inception of the firelog industry and the formation of Duraflame, Inc. as an independent corporation. Today the firelog industry generates $250 million in retail sales annually.
