Morsø gives you local warming. Not global.
Wood has quite a special property when talking about CO2. As the tree grows, it absorbs and locks in carbon dioxide as part of the photosynthesis process. Precisely the same amount of CO2 is released into the atmosphere when the tree is felled and burnt. If burning-off takes place efficiently, the count adjusts downwardly, so we can say that burning wood is carbon-neutral and therefore a green energy source.
Not only that, but wood (unlike oil, coal or gas), can be reproduced by planting new trees to replace those cut down. The neutral CO2-cycle can therefore be maintained, generation after generation.
To bring the CO2 count completely down to zero, the wood must be burnt off as efficiently as possible. And this is where Morsø’s wood-burning stoves score their first important points. Our many years of experience and constant development mean that, today, each and every one of our wood-burning stoves are among the most efficient combustion systems in the world.
DEFRA-Approved for use in smoke-free zones
On the one side, there’s talk about CO2 and global warming. On the other, there’s the recurring debate about soot, which, along with harmless water vapour, is contained in the smoke emitted from any wood-burning stove.
We have put every effort into the development of our stoves from an environmental point of view.
The demonstrable result is that if used correctly, the emission of particles from a modern Morsø wood-burning stove has been reduced to an absolute minimum through refined combustion technology and advanced purification systems.
Many of our wood-burning stoves are DEFRA-Approved for use in smokefree zones, passing the strict requirements of the Clean Air Act 1993.
Safety is standard
Morsø’s wood-burning stoves meet some of the strictest environmental standards in the world. This particularly applies to Norwegian Standard NS 3058/3059, which sets out stringent requirements on minimising particle emissions.
To highlight our environmental focus, the majority of Morsø’s stoves are, today, also certified to the Nordic Swan Eco-label. This not only focuses on minimising the stove’s impact on the environment when in operation, it also focuses on the impact on the environment caused by the actual production and choice of packaging too.
Our stoves are also tested for low particle emissions in the USA and Austria.
All our stoves comply with European Standard EN 13 240, which, in other words, this means that the stoves are CE-marked.
