Legislation

Clean Air Act 1993

Edinburgh is a smoke-controlled area which means that smoke cannot be emitted from the chimney of any building. However, this does not mean that you cannot burn wood. There are certain exempt appliances which are listed on the Defra website which may be used to burn wood in smoke-controlled areas.

We also sell Homefire Smokeless coal which can be burnt in smoke-controlled areas such as Edinburgh.

Biomass Suppliers List

The Biomass Suppliers List (BSL) is a list of wood fuel that has proven it meets the eligibility requirements for the Renewable Heat Incentive (RHI) scheme. It allows RHI participants to easily demonstrate to Ofgem that the fuel they are using in their biomass boilers meets the RHI sustainability criteria required to claim their RHI payments. 

Edinburgh Wood Fuel is an authorised supplier on the Biomass Suppliers List.
