Solid Mineral Fuel

The solid mineral fuels listed below have been tested and approved by HETAS on behalf of the fuel producer.

The testing and approval combined with a quality assurance scheme enables the fuel to carry the HETAS Approved Solid Fuel logo for which the customer should look. Petroleum coke is not recommended by HETAS for use on solid fuel burning appliances  because its use can result in serious damage to grates and other appliance components in the fuel bed area.

Testing and approval

Fuels are tested according to a standard test procedure using a standard test appliance (Ref HETAS – Form 7B – A Guide To Methods Of Test And Standards Of Performance for Domestic Solid Mineral Fuels And Firelighters). Variations exist depending on the type of fuel and the approval being sought.

The approved coal merchandise scheme

The Approved Coal Merchants Scheme (ACMS) is the body recognised by Trading Standards as the regulator for the coal trade. Members are fully trained and are committed to serving the customer.
