Bioethanol has become indispensable in many households. Whether just for decorative purposes or to overcome the time between winter and summer - the uses are varied. Bioethanol fireplaces are constantly increasing. To achieve a cozy atmosphere, this is just a great alternative for anyone who can't have a real wood-burning fireplace.
Bioethanol is a flammable colorless liquid that is actually ethanol. In turn, ethanol is produced from either petrol or biomass. It is the ethanol produced from biomass that is most often called bioethanol. It is chemically identical to petroleum-derived ethanol. Common raw materials for bioethanol include corn, grass, sugar cane, potatoes, seaweed or other biomass.
|IMPORTANT !!! Bioethanol with a purity of not more than 97% is used for combustion in the biofireplaces offered in this online store. Custom-made stainless steel combustion chambers and glass, stone or stainless steel biofireplaces can burn 100% bioethanol.|
We guarantee that the combustion of bioethanol is odorless and residue-free. Of course, the bioethanol offered in this shop is tested annually by TÜV-Süd (test center in Hamburg) and is certified for its purity, quality and durability, it is also absolutely harmless for use in the provided devices (biofireplaces and combustion chambers). While you admire the beautiful play of flames in your fireplace, only CO 2 and water are released into the air - we guarantee this with a certificate and seal from TÜV Süd.
During combustion, bioethanol reacts with oxygen to produce carbon dioxide (CO 2), water vapor and heat:
C 2 H 5 OH + 3 O 2 → 2 CO 2 + 3 H 2 O + heat
Wait a minute - does this create water and CO 2?
Correct! And for this reason it is extremely important to always ventilate the rooms well so that moisture does not settle on the furniture or walls. And of course the most important thing: To always have enough oxygen to breathe.
