A BFT decorative fireplace is not a heater!
It is not possible to heat economically using bio-alcohol. However, the combustion process in our smokeless models produces 1.2 - 3.0 kW of heat, a large portion of which remains in the room, as there is no heat loss through a chimney.

BFT was established by Herbert Bee in 1982 as a trade representation for custom building elements and in 1986 expanded to a retail business with its own service and installation department.
Since 1998, BFT has specialized in energy concepts for low-energy and passive houses and heat-insulating windows.
In 2003 with the development of the patented bio-fuel system as a sole heat source for passive houses, new ground was broken.
The ?smokeless? fireplace was first presented to the public at the State Garden Show in Trier in 2004 in a passive house built especially for that occasion.
The interest in this groundbreaking project was encouraging.
Since 2005, the company?s efforts have been concentrated on bio-fuel systems.
In the same year, Herbert Bee was awarded the environment prize by the state of Rheinland-Pfalz.
The design and technology for the ?smokeless? fireplaces was continually developed in the years since.
