Fire has always been associated with vitality and divine. Warmth and brightness have always accompanied human existence in all daily practices: from the most trivial daily need to sacred priestly and divination activities. Shaping fire means, in some way, bringing human beings closer to the spirituality contained in a simple flame. Altro-fuoco (Other fire) is a brand that, with an excellent tradition and design is able to shape fire, giving it all the elegance of Made in Italy. There are many secrets to success. Here we will provide an overview of the virtues that make this brand unique and explain what a bargain is to purchase a product by Altro-fuoco.

Bio-Flame: the crown jewel of Altro-fuoco
Bio-fireplaces are the crown jewel of Altro-fuoco. These furniture jewels are essential elements to create striking and exclusive locaitons. The spirituality of fire enhances the places making them unique and, at the same time, comfortably heated. The practicality of the device and the operation of bio-fireplaces make them adaptable to any environment.
In fact, these fireplaces don't have any flue pipe and therefore can be moved and installed anywhere. The power supply is very peculiar and is the organic component of the product. Basically, eco-friendly fireplaces require no chimney as they are fueled by a particular renewable and non-polluting fuel: bioethanol.
Bioethanol comes from denatured alcohol and is produced through the distillation of biomass such as corn, sugar beets, potatoes. This fuel is reliable and stable from an ecological and chemical point of view and it is in fact much used in multiple fields (also for cars, especially in Brazil).
Since biomass is a renewable resource, Altro-fuoco chimneys can be a valid instrument for the implementation of eco-sustainable policies with the utmost respect for the environment. Another winning feature of this fuel regards the fact that it produces non-toxic wastes during combustion. Furthermore, the carbon dioxide produced by the flame is comparable to that produced by a human being while breathing.
Bioethanol can be purchased directly from O.N.C, or if you decide to use other filling stations it is recommended to use 96% pure bioethanol.
Biomass fireplaces require a very low maintenance. In fact, during combustion they do not produce any ash. Therefore, the cleaning is limited to that required by an ordinary piece of furniture. The only extra care regards the cleaning of the burners, that must be carried out with specific additives for stainless steel.
During the coldest winters, the rooms or our house are made comfortable by the warmth produced by the flame which is sufficient to heat an area of over 30 m². In traditional fireplaces, 70% of the heat is dispersed due to the presence of the chimney. Instead, Altro-fuoco fireplaces' output is equal to 100% because there is no leakage. Despite the high efficiency of biomass fireplaces, they cannot constitute the main heating of a house, but they are pieces of furniture conceived to support the major heating source and contributing to significant energy savings.
