General Information - About Bio Fuel With   rising   energy   prices,   pollution,   and   the   ever   increasing   awareness   for   a   greener   environment,   many   people   are   considering   heating options which is clean, safe and environmentally friendly. Ethanol   is   one   of   these   –   since   it   is   made   from   plants,   which   does   not   release   any   new   carbon   dioxide   (CO2)   into   the   air.   The   only   CO2   that   can be   released   is   the   gas   which   was   absorbed   by   the   plants   as   they   grew.   Ethanol   when   burning   is   similar   to   a   human   breathing   –   small   amounts   of water vapour and carbon dioxide with no harmful or toxic substances are emitted. Bio Fuel Ethanol   is   also   known   by   the   names   'ethyl   alcohol'   and   'grain   alcohol'.   It   has   a   unique   scent   and   is   very   flammable,   colourless   and   tasteless   in   its pure   form.   It   is   a   mildly   toxic   chemical   compound,   and   is   the   same   alcohol   found   in   alcoholic   beverages.   It   is   generally   referred   to   simply   as "alcohol".   For   use   as   a   heating   fuel,   ethanol   is   "denatured"   with   the   addition   of   small   amounts   of   other   components   that   make   it   toxic   for   human consumption.   By   this   process,   denatured   alcohol   is   not   subject   to   the   same   taxes   that   are   levied   on   beverage   alcohols   intended   for   human consumption. The denatured ethanol in this form is commonly known as 'bio fuel' or 'bio ethanol'. Environmentally Friendly Because   ethanol   is   so   readily   available,   and   since   the   burning   of   denatured   ethanol   produces   no   hazardous   emissions,   using   it   in   fireplaces   is   a very attractive and effective option. Clean Emission As   bioethanol   is   entirely   composed   of   biological   matter,   its   combustion   results   in   a   clean   emission   of   only   water   vapour   and   carbon   dioxide. Carbon   dioxide   or   CO2   is   absorbed   by   plants,   which   process   it   via   photosynthesis   to   help   the   plant   grow.   This   infinite   cycle   of   creation   and combustion of energy – in a way "recycling of energy" – renders bioethanol a carbon-neutral fuel. Efficient Green Energy All   Syam   appliances   are   technically   engineered   in   such   a   manner   that   their   combustion   temperature   secures   not   only   a   minimum   fuel consumption   but   also   a   clean   combustion   of   bioethanol.   This   means   in   turn   that   a   chimney   or   flue   are   not   needed   and   thus   that   100%   of   the heat generated are kept indoors Fuel Consumption Unlike   wood   or   gas   burning   fireplaces,   the   flame   behaviour   seen   in   bioethanol   fireplaces   is   very   much   influenced   by   airflow   around   the   burner and   draft   conditions,   which   prevail   in   the   individual   setting.   Both   can   have   an   undesired   effect   on   the   combustion   temperature   and   the   fuel consumption. Supporting   our   customers   with   our   expertise   and   technical   knowhow   enables   them   to   create   not   only   a   stunning   focal   point   but   also   a perfectly functional and safe to operate bioethanol fireplace.
