Consideration for nature and the climate has always been a high
priority at RAIS, and we were among the first companies whose
stoves were certified with the Nordic Eco-label.
Our newest wood burning stoves and inserts meet even stricter
requirements, for efficiency and particulate emissions than those
of the Nordic Ecolabel. RAIS stoves are recognised globally for
being environmentally friendly.
We continue to focus on developing and optimising combustion,
including collaborations with Aalborg University and the Danish
Technological Institute. As a guiding force in the industry
through the years, RAIS has repeatedly set new standards for the
environmental requirements for modern wood-burning stoves.
We call them CO2 neutral because the amount of
CO2 emitted when fired correctly is equal to the amount
of CO2 the tree would have emitted while decomposing in
The Nordic Ecolabel
All wood-burning stoves and inserts from RAIS carry the Nordic
Ecolabel. And they exceed the requirements for this label. Our
newest models exploit 80 % of the wood's heating value and particle
emissions are less than 2.5 g per kg of firewood.
Thus, a free-standing RAIS stove only emits half of the maximum
allowed by the Nordic Ecolabel, and only one-third for inserts. In
addition, the efficiency is well over the 73 percent required by
the Nordic Ecolabel.
The excellent figures for heating value and particulate
emissions require firing as prescribed, with dry, untreated wood,
e.g. firewood from forestry, regardless of wood type. See more in
the Responsible Wood Burning film. Follow its advice for the sake
of the environment and your neighbours.
