Also sometimes known as 'Cats'. These are honey-combed ceramic chambers coated with a metallic catalyst that is used to lower the temperature at which wood will burn. This allows wood to burn slower, longer and therefore, more efficiently. This then means that the fumes that would normally be released via the chimney are burned more effectively thereby releasing fewer pollutants. Click here to read more about these.
