The Ethanol Fireplace – The Environmentally Friendly Alternative

A fireplace is a classic for comfort during the cold seasons. But few are able to enjoy a warm fireplace.
Often you don't have the right ventilation: a chimney. An ethanol fireplace is a good alternative to traditional fireplaces. The decorative fireplace doesn't need ventilation and burns without developing smoke. Manufacturer Radius Design makes use of this advantage with the Uni Flame. The standing fireplace is a type of "glass fire". The flame is only visible behind a protective glass screen and ventilation comes from above.

Economical and Environmentally Friendly

As the name reveals, an ethanol fireplace burns ethanol. The chemical is added to the burning chamber in liquid or gel form. Ethanol fireplaces are rather economical. Per hour, they usually burn less than one half litre of fuel. Ethanol is a high-percentage alcohol. Contrary to burning fossil fuels such as wood or coal, ethanol doesn't produce pollutants. An ethanol fireplace only produces hydrogen and CO2. The carbon dioxide is comparable to that of seven or eight people breathing. If you already have a fireplace but want to operate it with bioethanol, the Quadro Feuerbox by Conmoto is the right choice. The decorative fire can be used as a freestanding indoor fireplace, but it can also be place inside a fireplace thanks to the large burning pan.

Quickly Growing Fuel - Why Choose Bioethanol

Burning ethanol is environmentally friendly, but so is its production. Bioethanol is produced exclusively from environmentally friendly materials such as wine or yeast. The ethanol is created during fermentation of grapes or hops and is then distilled. Chinese silvergrass is a new trend in the extraction of bio-alcohol. The plant can be grown in more uneconomical regions and needs little care. The Fireplace by Carl Mertens is as uncomplicated as the extraction of the fuel. It can be used as an open fireplace on the floor or on your table. Two layered stainless steel cylinders fulfil the function of burning logs. The cylinders have glass fibre wicks that absorb the lamp's oil from a small tank.

Rule Number One: Regular Ventilation

An ethanol fireplace basically breathes like you. This means: It creates carbon and thus "consumes" the air in the room faster. Therefore, you should make sure to ventilate well before and after using the fireplace. Be particularly careful at temperatures over 21 degrees. At this temperature, ethanol can evaporate and thus create an easily flammable mixture in the air. Therefore, it is important never to leave ethanol bottles or cans of burning paste open and to remove ethanol spills immediately.
