Bioethanol Fires: Portable Warmth

The element of fire in any outdoor space has so many benefits. It not only provides a delicious warmth, but it becomes a central meeting spot and it extends the hours you can spend outside, particularly this time of year. Many people love the element of fire but believe it is not possible to incorporate  into their own space for numerous reasons. Some of the most common being:

  • not enough space
  • no flue or utility connection
  • the outdoor space is undercover
  • don’t like the smoke
  • don’t like the mess

Bioethanol fires have been around for quite a few years now and have cemented themselves as a great alternative within the fire product category. They fill a void created by all other wood fire products.

Bioethanol is a completely renewable and clean burning energy source that delivers warming heat without the smoke, soot, ash, or embers of a traditional wood fire. The fireplaces also relocate with ease, and this portability is greatly enhanced by the self contained engineering created by the EcoSmart system.

There is no need for a utility connection of either gas or electricity, which means you can transform the look and feel of your outdoor entertaining area at anytime, anywhere. You can place the fire within your garden, courtyard, terrace, patio, pool deck, or backyard entertainment area.

Bioethanol is a denatured alcohol also called Methylated Spirits. It is a fuel completely composed of biological products. 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. It is also made from corn, potatoes, milk, rice, beetroot and recently grapes, banana and dates depending on the countries agricultural strength.

Today, bioethanol has many uses: It is blended with petrol to make a sustainable transport fuel, it’s used in cosmetic and other manufacturing processes, and it creates the clean burning, beautiful flame in the Ecosmart Fireplaces.

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.
