Fiber Fuel is a wood brick that is environmentally friendly
and is used to either replace or complement the standard firewood. Ideal for
things like wood stoves, furnaces, and even backyard fire pits, each brick
weighs approximately 2 pounds making them very convenient to use, store, and clean
This product uses zero binders and absolutely no glue. It’s
made from 100% wood which is compressed with an amazing 22,000 pounds of
pressure. The ash that is created is less than 1% which is very beneficial
helping to minimize clean outs, moisture content and creosote buildup.
Produced by Lewis Mouldings, Fiber Fuel is composed solely
of Eastern White Pine and produces 8,988 BTUs per pound. It is considered a
premium fuel source with many users quickly making this their main source of
heat after learning about it and experiencing it.
One pallet of Fiber Fuel has 84 12-pack bags (24 pounds) which
weighs 2,016 pounds and is the equivalent of one cord of seasoned hardwood. It
can be purchased by the bag or by the pallet.
These wood bricks are comprised completely of wood waste
that has been kiln dried. Because of this there is considerably less moisture contributing
to more efficient burning, less ash and reduced emissions. When you use Fiber
Fuel another very big positive is that it lessens the risk of creosote buildup
in the chimney which has been known to cause fires.
Burning wood as a fuel source is largely more economical
than fossil fuels and is better overall for the environment. When wood burns
the only greenhouse gas that it could emit would be anything that it took in
while it was living. Because of this, the carbon footprint of burning Fiber Fuel
is net zero.
Utilizing Fiber Fuel gives you a product that is ready for
immediate use with no need to season or dry it like you would with regular
wood. Because these come wrapped and ready for use, it greatly reduces bringing
unwanted dirt, insects, and mold into your home.
Each brick weighs approximately 2 pounds which allows you to
stack them neatly, estimate amounts and weights more accurately than wood as
well as being safer to put into the furnace or the stove. Fiber Fuel’s ability
to be used in wood stoves allows the product to constantly heat even during
These bricks really can be used in any appliance that both
burns wood and is properly maintained. During the transition from hard wood to
Fiber Fuel there may be a couple days of closely monitoring as the bricks tend
to burn hotter than the wood that you were using. After the initial warm up of
the appliance it would be a typical rule of thumb to say that 2 to 3 bricks
would burn every 80 to 100 minutes. This will however vary based on the
environment and the appliance being used.
Fiber Fuel stays from season to season and the only things
that you will want to avoid is getting the product wet. If you are storing it
in a basement it would be a good thing to keep it off the floor but outside of
that, it’s a very stable product and will not deteriorate.
The raw materials that went into making these bricks are
recycled and are the byproducts of making other wood products. There is no
excess wood that is harvested and the company relies solely on recycled materials.

One brick of Fiber Fuel creates 17,800 BTUs. A BTU is a
British Thermal Unit and is a standard way to measure the output of heat. One
BTU is defined as the amount of heat required to raise the temperature of one
pound of water by one degree. There are 12 bricks per bag and 84 bags
per pallet. One pallet of Fiber Fuel (84 bags) produces approximately
“So, how do I start a fire with Fiber Fuel?” you may ask.
This is a great question and we would suggest the following. Create a pyramid
that uses 3 to 4 bricks arranged in a way where there is some space beneath the
upper bricks. Under these bricks use a bit of paper or kindling and start a
fire here. Using what you just built you can allow to go into a full burn.
Next, you should reduce the draft if possible and add bricks as is required to
maintain. To find what your overnight requirements may be could involve a bit
of experimentation but make sure that airflow is greatly reduced. Rest assured
that Fiber Fuel will burn effectively in this manner, and will allow for hot
embers remaining in the morning. Additional bricks can be loaded at that
time.It is quite possible that many of your family and friends
are already using Fiber fuel to heat their homes. When you think about all of
the work and the mess that is involved with conventional firewood it’s a great
time to try Fiber Fuel.
