Bio-Ethanol Fuel Explained
Bioethanol fuel, or bio gel fuel, is a form of renewable energy made from natural ingredients. Ethanol is commonly made from the fermentation of biomass such as corn, sugarcane, hemp, sugarcane, potato and cassava. Gel fire and bio-ethanol fireplace fuel is actually called ethyl alcohol, the same type of alcohol that is found in beer, wine and spirits, basically all alcoholic beverages. In its purest form it is 100% alcohol, however the proof rating in the bottles of bio-ethanol fuel purchased for fireplaces is typically around 96%. The missing 4% is additives which are blended with the alcohol to discourage it from being used as a recreational drink.
