ESSE, the heating solutions brand, has announced that its 500 Series wood-burning stoves now meet the new air quality emission requirements.

The 500 series models - 500 Vista, 525 and 550 - now comply with the new emissions requirements as a result of their combustion technology, which reburns any smoke particles it produces.

They operate at 83.5% efficiency and hold an energy efficiency rating of ‘A+’.

The announcement follows the publication of the UK Government’s new Clean Air Strategy, which will introduce more stringent checks on wood-burning stoves in the future.

Contrary to certan media reports, the UK Government has no plans to ban the use of wood-burning stoves in urban areas or anywhere else. However, from 2022 only the cleanest burning appliances can legally be sold in Britain.

ESSE technical director Craig Nutter said: “As our friends in the automotive industry learned to their cost, trying to ‘game’ emissions testing regimes may have unintended consequences.”

“We’ve been working towards meeting these new requirements for some time now, but we don’t believe ‘quick fixes’ are appropriate to meeting this particular challenge.

“All our bestselling stoves will meet the new requirements before 2022 and we are committed to taking real world operating conditions into account.

“We believe that the stove should perform well on low, medium and high settings and that’s what we are working towards. If we don’t get the combustion calibration exactly right, the precision control our customers expect will be compromised.”
