Fire Dragon is a environmentally friendly solid fuel. It is born out of a need for a new cleaner, greener, and safer fuel.
UK soldiers have for many years been commenting on their need for a fuel that can be used quickly in combat situations, that is easy to light, safe to carry, and can be used in confined spaces. Whilst the current generation of hexamine blocks used by the military offer an air transportable option, their overall quality is far from what is expected of modern military grade products. Problems with hexamine blocks include formation of toxic gases when used, and large variations in the burning performance of the blocks.
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.

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.
