How our bioethanol fireplaces work

How do bioethanol fireplaces work?

They may sound complicated, but a bioethanol fireplace is really easy to use.

  • Step

    Just squeeze the bioethanol from our ‘squeezy’ bottles into the burner box supplied with your fireplace.

  • Step

    Using a gas lighter style tool or extended taper, light the bio ethanol fuel. Within just a few minutes a lovely natural and cosy flame will appear.

  • Step

    Use the metal closing rod supplied to pull / push the sliding mechanism over the flame to adjust or extinguish the flame.

Benefits of bioethanol compared to log or gas fireplaces

  • No need for a chimney

    Our bioethanol fireplaces don't need any flue or chimney because they don’t give off any smoke!

  • Environmentally friendly and clean

    Bioethanol fuel burns with 98% efficiency, so its clean burning and no unpleasant residue.

  • Zero or minimal installation needed

    Many of our free-standing bioethanol firepalces come fully assembled, whilst others are wall mounted in 40 minutes or less.

  • Allowed in smoke controlled zone

    Since our bioethanol fireplaces do not produce smoke, they are permitted in geographical areas that have smoke controlled zones!

  • Safe

    Our fires have real flames but as long as they are used as advised, they are safe and easy to use. 

  • Adjustable flame

    Its easy to adjust the flame size or heat output of most of our real flame bioethaol fireplaces. 

  • No gas or electricity

    All you need is a bioethanol fireplace, and our bioethanol fuel. That’s it! Nothing else. No gas or electric source.

  • Real warming flame

    Our biofires give off real heat from a real flame. Nothing artificial here!

What is bioethanol?

Bioethanol - or simply ‘ethanol’ is a renewable energy source made by fermenting the sugar and starch components of plant by-products - mainly sugarcane and crops like grain, using yeast.

Clean Emission

Bioethanol fuel is completely composed of biological products. The combustion of bio ethanol results in a clean emission: Heat, Steam and Carbon Dioxide.

Carbon dioxide is absorbed by plants. It is then processed via photosynthesis to help the plant grow. This infinite cycle of creation and combustion of energy makes bio ethanol a carbon neutral fuel source.
