WHAT ARE
BIO-BLOCKS?

BIO-BLOCKS are made of 100% recycled, kiln-dried hardwood sawdust, compacted under high pressure, to form a wood briquette. Wood contains lignin, a natural binder under pressure, which means that no additives or chemicals are necessary. BIO-BLOCKS are environmentally friendly, creating minimal smoke, ash or creosote. Wood briquettes can be used in any wood-burning device providing a clean, convenient alternative to traditional firewood.

I build a fire often with my girls. What I love about BIO BLOCKS is that I can do a double decker fire. It has a consistent burn and is an amazing product. I’ve tried tons of products and nothing works like BIO BLOCKS!

How do I ignite BIO BLOCKS?

OPTION I

  1. Stack four BIO BLOCKS in a teepee.
  2. Leaving a one inch space, build a second teepee of four in front of the first.
  3. Divide a BIO BLOCK Fire Starter into four pieces.
  4. Place one piece in the center of the teepee and ignite.
  5. Establish a strong burn before adding additional BIO BLOCKS.
  6. After your fire is established, the damper on your wood stove can be adjusted for a long, slow burn.

OPTION II

  1. Place four BIO BLOCKS flat in a wood burning device, leaving a space between blocks for airflow.
  2. Place three BIO BLOCKS over the spaces making a second row.
  3. Place one BIO BLOCK on top to complete your pyramid.

Are BIO BLOCKS economical to use for home heating?
  • You will receive what you pay for every time. There are always 88 packs of BIO BLOCKS on a pallet, which equals one ton. The measurements of firewood can be questionable if sold in quantities less than one cord.
  • BIO BLOCKS have a moisture content of 8.5% according to research at the University of Buffalo in New York. This accounts for the long, hot burn of BIO BLOCKS. Firewood is considered dry at 20%.
  • One ton of BIO BLOCKS = 1 1/2 cords of firewood. The consistent size, low moisture, tight compression and blend of kiln-dried hardwoods provides approximately 14 – 18 Mil BTU’s per ton.
  • BIO BLOCKS provide a warm, even heat. Never worry about what the thermostat is set at again!

ABOUT US


Founded in 2000, by Gary and Victoria Miller, as a wholesale, millwork manufacturing company. After more than a decade of business, our desire to find a creative use for sawdust, our by-product at the time, and an interest in alternative energy, led to the purchase of our first wood briquetting machine.
