Ethanol burning fireplaces put a modern spin on outdated fireplaces with designs that offer sophisticated "green" technology. They burn ethanol fuel, which is produced by the fermentation of sugars originating from plant forestry products. Ethanol fuel is a clean, renewable fuel source, that emits a non-polluting, smokeless, odorless, safe fire that can be enjoyed in both indoor and outdoor settings. Ethanol fireplaces produce thinner flames that are more dispersed and lively. Let the fuel warm up for just a few minutes for the flame to be at its best. Once it has warmed it will provide you with a beautiful orange and yellow flame, full of motion.
