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
Stoves from RAIS carry the Scandinavian eco-label, the Swan.
This means that the stoves are among the least
damaging products in the product line. The stoves meet high
through the entire cycle from raw material to waste. This is
controlled by the authorities who issue the Swan label. Hereby it
is ensured that:
- emission of particles < 4 [g/kg] for free-standing
- emission of particles < 4 [g/kg] for inserts
- emission of hydrocarbons OGC < 120 mg/m3
- Efficiency rate is at least 75 %
However, RAIS has taken it further and have efficiency rates of
up to 80%.
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.
