The Great Green Revolution has at long last extended its leafy tendrils into the fire market. Bio fires combust bioethanol to produce water vapour and carbon dioxide, producing a clean and natural flame. These stoves are the future of clean burning, environmentally friendly fire, due to the fact that bioethanol is produced through the fermentation of plant material, therefore making it 'carbon neutral', and hence green.
Carbon neutrality essentially means that the net carbon release of burning bio-ethanol is zero, as burning bioethanol will only release as much carbon (in the form of carbon dioxide) into the atmosphere as was originally bound up in plant sugars during photosynthesis, a complete equivalence. As opposed to other fuel sources, such as coal, which typically are producing a net addition of carbon into the atmosphere upon being burned.
Typically bio fires are designed to give more of a decorative flame effect, with heat as a by-product and so shouldn't be relied upon as a source of primary heating. This being said, some models do have an output of up to 7kW and thanks to how clean bio fires burn, no chimney or flue is required, therefore bio fires are 100% efficient. There is a wide range of styles available with bio fires so we are sure to have something for you.
There are a wide range of models to suit everyone's style and requirements - both contemporary and traditional, indoor and outdoor models. Bio fires have zero emissions which mean you can use them inside smoke control zones, therefore all bio fires are DEFRA approved. Cheaper design and ease of use make the bio fire the fire of choice for many people, use our Fire Finder search tool to see if a bio fire is for you. Simply input your requirements and let the Fire Finder do all the hard work.
