Bioethanol fuel is a unique renewable and sustainable fuel source that boasts of a variety of benefits that include being environmentally-friendly, clean burning, and safe for use indoors and outdoors. A great gas and wood alternative, it is formulated into pure alcohol from natural plant byproducts, which then gets recycled back to plants for photosynthesis once burned (you can read about it more in detail in our All About Ethanol article). Unlike its real wood burning counterpart, bioethanol doesn't emit harmful ash or soot byproducts. Instead, it produces heat, steam, and carbon dioxide—making it safe for use indoors (and outdoors).
Benefits of Bioethanol Fuel
Bioethanol fuel is a sustainable and renewable source of energy that produces only clean emissions of heat, steam, and carbon dioxide. This makes it safe for use indoors. [Pictured left: Martini 50 Fire Pit Table // Pictured right: Gin 90 Bar Height Fire Pit Table by EcoSmart Fire].
Designed as a secondary heat source, it certainly delivers vibrant flames with an efficient burn time at approximately 1 quart every 1-2 hours. When combined with compatible EcoSmart Fire fireplaces and fire pits, bioethanol fuel offers a quick and simple installation that eliminates the need for gas lines, electric wires, vents, and chimneys. This is because it is designed for use with a special bioethanol burner fabrication made of 304 stainless steel, which ensures the fuel is provided with a safe housing. All it takes is pouring the fuel into the burner. Easy as that! It requires little to no maintenance, meaning no smoke, ash, or soot to clean up. Depending on how often you plan on using your fire feature, denaturing agents may build up. To ensure it remains in pristine condition throughout the seasons, simply rinse the burner with hot water.
Bioethanol fuel also offers the convenience of being purchasable online to be delivered directly to your door. Compared to traditional wood, that means one less trip chopping down logs in the forest, and compared to liquid propane, that means one less trip running out to your local grocer to replenish your empty propane tank cylinder. But what makes bioethanol fuel truly unique is its safe and portable capabilities for indoor use.
