Smokeless Coal Ireland FAQs

What Is Smokeless Fuel?

Our smokeless coal products deliver minimal or no visible smoke. By radiating heat via infra-red radiation, it’s more efficient than traditional house coal — due to smokeless coal production forming the combustible into high-energy briquettes and nuggets.

What Is Lignite?

Formed from compressed peat, lignite is a low-density, low-smoke, sedimentary fuel — also referred to as brown coal. At MFS Fuel Services, we provide the best lignite briquettes Ireland has to offer — premium quality yet affordably priced.

What Are Lignite Nuggets?

In its unrefined state, lignite is high on moisture — hence it’s compressed into lignite coal briquettes to remove the excessive H2O content.

Is Lignite Any Good?

Yes. Read any lignite briquettes review, and you’ll discover that it’s a reassuringly low-smoke fuel suitable for smoke-free zones. Formed into regularly sized briquettes, it offers a consistent burn with considerable heat output.

What Is Petcoke?

Created as a by-product of petroleum refining, petcoke — or petroleum coke — is a smokeless fuel that burns with extremely high heat. It features a sponge-like appearance and is combined with a variety of coal types to create blends suitable for use in smoke-free zones.
