We formulated and developed the FireDragon firelighter to help people who venture in the great outdoors cook their rations and boil their brews quickly, safeguarding their health and protecting the environment at the same time.
FireDragon Solid and Gel are a all-weather ECO FRIENDLY biofuel & firelighter. Made from UK sourced ethanol, FireDragon can be used in multi-fuel cooking stoves, for indoor ethanol fireplaces and is excellent for kick starting the barbecue.
Borne out of the natural fiery passion of South Wales and its coal mining heritage, Fire Dragon is the product to fix these problems.
Through its tradition of in-house development and collaboration with Cardiff University, BCB International is pleased to offer a truly unique and technically advanced solid fuel.
How does Fire Dragon compare to the rest?
FireDragon out-performs other cooking fuels
Fire Dragon can boil 500 ml of water in 5 minutes. This is over 2 minutes faster than the second best performing fuel. Meths boiled the same amount of water in 7 minutes, Hexamine in 7.5 minutes and Liquid Ethanol Gel in 7.75 minutes. That's a massive 2.75 minutes longer than Fire Dragon.
