We often ask ourselves the question, what kind of fireplace is truly environmentally friendly fireplace? There is no doubt that the environmental protection of the alcohol fireplace is the best. Alcohol fireplaces can replace the existence of traditional heat sources.

Under the same conditions, the alcohol fireplace using biomass ethanol fuel is not inferior to its predecessors. Although in the field of heating, the alcohol fireplace is a newcomer to the fireplace family, but it is better than the alcohol fireplace can burn cleanly, in an ideal state. It does not emit a large amount of harmful or dirty substances to the environment. In fact, the combustion products of alcohol fireplaces are only carbon dioxide, water and heat.

Similar to the traditional heat source, the alcohol fireplace is designed to generate heat and light in the room for heating and viewing the fire. In order to achieve this goal, it must meet the three elements of combustion. In other words, fuel is the most important existence. Traditional fireplaces may use wood or natural gas or gas as the source of heat.

The alcohol fireplace uses a combustible and renewable resource-biomass ethanol fuel. Generally speaking, there are different types of biomass ethanol fuel, but the most important part for combustion is nothing more than sugar-based and corn-based substances.

Environmental protection of alcohol fireplaces

The function of the alcohol fireplace is mainly related to environmental benefits. Biomass ethanol fuel will not release harmful gases into the atmosphere, but will generate a small amount of carbon into the air. The biomass ethanol fuel used in the alcohol fireplace is also a miraculous renewable energy source. The logs used in traditional fireplaces are derived from forests, which interferes with the number of trees in the environment and the oxygen content in the air. Since the biomass ethanol fuel used in the alcohol fireplace is made of sugar or corn, the time required to grow these crops is less than the time required to plant and plant trees.

In a sense, the alcohol fireplace is a natural emission-free fireplace. What you may not expect is that this seemingly cost-saving and convenient choice of conditions, but in practical applications, it is perilous. The special commonality of this alcohol fireplace is related to The special structure, if the alcohol fireplace cannot operate normally, it will bring about two very real negative effects.

The oxygen level may decrease as the carbon dioxide level increases.

The final result is nothing more than two, one is that the humidity of the room where the alcohol fireplace is located may increase. Furthermore, we can assume that if the space where the alcohol fireplace is located does not have proper ventilation and air circulation equipment, then the trace carbon dioxide emitted by the alcohol fireplace into the air will accumulate.

Carbon dioxide is non-toxic. alcohol fireplaces do not need chimneys. This is well known, but without a chimney without ventilation is deadly, because excessive carbon dioxide will reduce the oxygen content, and alcohol fireplaces will not burn completely at this moment. The product contains carbon monoxide, which is a highly dangerous, colorless and odorless gas that can be released into the air. Most manufacturers of alcohol fireplaces explain that the amount of carbon monoxide released by their products is negligible, and the level produced is not higher than the level that a burning candle might produce. This explanation is based on the premise of unobstructed ventilation.


The definition of environmental protection is "harmless to the environment", but it is extremely difficult to find an environmentally friendly fireplace that has absolutely no impact on the environment. At present, the environmental protection of alcohol fireplaces is still relatively good, and alcohol fireplaces can replace the existence of traditional heat sources.
