I have lots of small pieces of oak veneered MDF left over from my latest
project. I usually take all my scrap wood to the local dump.
My other half has recently purchased a brazier on eBay and wants to try it
out. So, my question is, is it safe to burn MDF. Not knowing what it's made
from, I wasn't sure it it would give of any nasty fumes....
Thanks in advance...
Charcoal in a pan, same-o.
Nothing more unsafe about _burning_ mdf than allowing slow oxidation in the
dump. Problem comes with incomplete burning, where the gases generated are
not hot enough or confined long enough to burn. In a "roaring" fire, sure.
In a controlled charcoal situation, stay upwind as Leon says.
In most places in CA, they banned charcoal starter years ago... now, if they'd
just do something about those damn leaf blowers.. *g*
I dont' think I'd want that stuff burning under anything I'd want to
eat. It kinda gives a new twist on stick to your ribs...
As for the US being the biggest polluters in the world...Nice trolling
Actually we're not........Our air, water and soil are far cleaner than many
or most other parts of the world......check out Mexico city etc.
etc......Oddly we get a "bad" rap for our world energy use percentage but it
simply coincides with our overall production or GNP. If you provide 25% of
the worlds production you pretty much use 25% of the energy......Rod
