Bioethanol is ethanol produced from biomass and / or the biodegradable (cellulosic) part of the waste. Using bioethanol as a fuel for eco fireplaces is just one way to use bioethanol. You’ve probably noticed that some buses (e.g. ZET) and some cars also use bioethanol as fuel. It can be used in internal combustion engines with the addition of gasoline or as its complete replacement.
Ethanol can be produced from: sugar, starch and cellulose. Raw materials rich in sugars are ideal for ethanol production, as they already contain simple sugars glucose and fructose, which can ferment directly into ethanol. Raw materials rich in starch contain large hydrocarbon molecules that need to be broken down into simple sugars by the saccharification process. This increases costs as it requires another stage in the production process. Hydrocarbons in cellulose-rich feedstocks are composed of even larger molecules and need to be converted into sugars that can be fermented by acidic or enzymatic hydrolysis. Sugar cane, sweet sorghum, cassava and corn are most often used for the production of ethanol.
The basic stages in the ethanol production process are:
- preparation of raw materials
- ethanol distillation
From an environmental point of view, bioethanol as a fuel has significant advantages over fossil fuels. Many advantages are achieved by replacing conventional fuels with ethanol:
- reducing the amount of harmful gases in the atmosphere
- less air and water pollution
- burns cleaner than fossil fuels
- poses less of a fire hazard than gasoline
- reduces the amount of greenhouse gases
- belongs to renewable energy sources
We offer tested bioethanol and we recommend it with our eco fireplaces. The price is 95.90 kn for 3 liters.
It cannot be sent via package delivery because it is prohibited by law. You can buy this ecological ethanol for eco fireplaces in our showroom.
Specifications and tips
Composition: 96% alcohol
The product is not harmful to the environment.
Safe for people and the environment if it is handled in accordance with the instructions on the label and the instructions for use.
It is a pure biological product of plant origin and is a completely renewable energy source.
Combustion of fuel is smokeless and has an unpleasant odor. Only water vapor and CO2 are excreted in similar amounts as in human respiration.
[alert-warning] Never add fuel to a hot burner.
The fuel is suitable for freestanding fireplaces or for built-in fireplaces, which are specially designed for its use.
Never charge more than half of the burner.
Do not place any objects in the flame and make sure that there are no flammable objects nearby.
The flame needs oxygen from the air when burning, so make sure the room is ventilated (no drafts). [/ Alert-warning]
