A cleaner source of energy : Bioethanol fireplaces

What is bioethanol?

Bioethanol is a source of renewable and domestic energy. It is a plant and vegetable based fuel produced through a sugar fermentation process. The sugar collected in order to produce it comes mainly from fuel or energy crops; including maize, corn and wheat crops.

As it is made from biological products, it is a cleaner source of fuel that emits 40-80% less greenhouse gases.
