Bio ethanol is actually alcohol that has been made unfit for consumption. Sometimes it is also called bio alcohol. This alcohol is obtained from the fermentation of plant residues. Burning alcohol does not release any harmful substances. A chimney is not necessary for a bio ethanol fireplace, but there must be sufficient ventilation, because a flame consumes oxygen. The bigger the flame, the more oxygen it needs, the more you need to ventilate.
A bio ethanol fireplace is therefore not only environmentally friendly but also much cheaper than a traditional wood stove or traditional fireplace. Installing this type of fireplace is easy and our bio ethanol fireplace with ceramic stone is maintenance-free.
Depending on your personal preference, you can choose from an existing piece of furniture with a bio ethanol fireplace insert or you can design something yourself. You will find a suitable bio ethanol fireplace for every situation.
