As a trade distributor for one of the UK's leading pre-packed solid fuel companies we deliver to garage forecourts, public houses and small businesses throughout the North East daily.  Located in Newcastle upon Tyne we cover a 50 mile radius taking in most NE, DH, DL, SR, and TS postcodes and can normally deliver free within 3 days often same/next day.  The Solid Fuel business focus is:

  • Clean and Convenient. All products come sealed in pre-packed extra strong bags with a guaranteed weight (coal) of 10kg (22lb).   The bags are stacked wherever you ask and can be easily carried into your home which means you don't need a bunker.  However, we are more than happy to split and fill your bunker if required.
  • Quality. A wide range of solid fuels all displayed in our showroom. Winter 2014/15 sees a focus on Kiln Dried Hardwood logs with excellent volume discounts.  Approximately 1 cubic meter of premium branded (40 bags) for 185 including VAT, delivery, carried and stacked wherever you want in your home.
  • Value for Money.  High volumes mean we pay less and pass those savings on.  The price of our primary smokeless fuel product has been fixed for three years and 2014/15 brings a reduction for higher volumes competing closely with loose delivery.
  • Free and Regular Deliveries. Our transport delivers throughout the North East daily.  All deliveries are free and can be at evenings or weekends when you are at home.  We endeavour to deliver with 3 days (2013/14 Winter achieved 95%) which means you can order low quantities and rely on regular re-supplies.

Solid Fuel, Wikipedia Says

Solid fuel refers to various types of solid material that are used as fuel to produce energy and provide heating, usually released through combustion. Solid fuels include wood (see wood fuel), charcoal, peat, coal, Hexamine fuel tablets, and pellets made from wood (see wood pellets), corn, wheat, rye and other grains. Solid-fuel rocket technology also uses solid fuel (see solid propellants).

Solid fuels have been used by humanity for many years to create fire. Coal was the fuel source which enabled the industrial revolution, from firing furnaces, to running steam engines. Wood was also extensively used to run steam locomotives. Both peat and coal are still used in electricity generation today.

The use of some solid fuels (e.g. coal) is restricted or prohibited in some urban areas, due to unsafe levels of toxic emissions. The use of other solid fuels such as wood is increasing as heating technology and the availability of good quality fuel improves. In some areas, smokeless coal is often the only solid fuel used. In Ireland, peat briquettes are used for home heating. They are also used to start a coal fire.

Solid fuels are contrasted with liquid fuels and gaseous fuels.       More on Wikipedia...
