​BIOETHANOL

​THE GREEN ALTERNATIVE​​

​​All Decoflame fireplaces are fuelled with denatured bioethanol which is a green, non-fossil fuel derived from sugar cane, beets, cereals or even hay. Bioethanol creates only a small amount of CO2 and water vapour when burning, which means that – if used in Decoflame fireplaces – it has a clear combustion without smoke, smell and soot emission and with no need for a chimney or ventilation.​

No chimney​

No smell

​As with all alcohol-based liquids, bioethanol changes its form from liquid to gas at around 17 degrees C. The vapours which develop are heavier than the air and remain therefore on top of the surface of the liquid bioethanol. Therefore, only the vapours are burning when lit and not the liquid itself.​

THE BEST BIOETHANOL

As bioethanol is denatured, i.e. made unfit for human consumption, pure bioethanol with 100% alcohol contents is not available. All Decoflame fireplaces can be operated only with bioethanol of at least 96% but max. 97.5% purity.

We recommend Decoflame bioethanol, which has an alcohol percentage of 96.5%. For more information on bioethanol or where to buy it, please contact us.

FUEL CONSUMPTION

​​Unlike wood or gas burning fireplaces, the flame behaviour seen in bioethanol fireplaces is very much influenced by the air flow around the burner and draft conditions which prevail in the individual setting. Both can have an impact on the combustion temperature and the fuel consumption.

Supporting our customers with our experience and technical knowledge enables them to create not only a stunning focal point but also a perfectly functional and safe to operate bioethanol fireplace.

For more information about the fuel consumption for a specific Decoflame fireplace, please see the details on product.

Decoflame made-to-measure bioethanol fireplaces with standard burners or the electronically controlled e-Ribbon Fire™ are designed and crafted in order to ensure a maximum of safety and economy in fuel consumption.​
