How It Works
What is bio ethanol?
Bio Ethanol, otherwise known as denatured alcohol, is a renewable energy source made by fermenting components of plant by-products. It is made from corn, potatoes, rice and several other crops.
When ethanol is burned, it produces beautiful and lively orange flames that lick the air with grace. Because it burns clean, you don't have to worry about the hassle of a chimney, flue or vent. Simply fill and light!
Clean and Green.
When you burn bio ethanol, it produces just three things: water vapor (steam), heat and carbon dioxide (co2). The carbon dioxide emitted by ethanol is absorbed by plants. Through photosynthesis it is processed and helps the plant grow.
Are you keeping track?
If you are, you'll realize that it is an infinite cycle. Therefore, this cyclic process makes ethanol a carbon-neutral fuel source, thus environmentally safe and Eco-friendly.
Don't be confused.
As many of us know, ethanol can be mixed with petrol to make a sustainable fuel for the car. However, ethanol used in gasoline and that used in fireplaces differs in concentration, etc. Therefore, only ethanol labeled for fireplace use should be employed in any fireplace.
Operating an Ethanol Burner:
Note: Ethanol will burn low at first. Please allow 10-15 minutes to reach desired flame height and temperature.
