IMPORTANT! READ HEED

  • Ethanol Fuel is a Class 3 Flammable Liquid and presents real danger when not used in direct compliance with the equipment
  • Ethanol Fuel should ONLY be handled by adults, NEVER by children.
  • To ensure safe use you must carefully read and adhere to all the manufacturer instructions. These instructions should be kept for reference and provided to ANYONE planning to use Ethanol Fuel in a burning device (equipment).
  • Do not store Ethanol Fuel in direct sunlight, or allow to become heated: always keep in a dry cool area.
  • Dispose of unused contents and empty bottles in accordance with local regulations for hazardous materials.
  • Ethanol vapors are heavier than air. Vapors may settle in low or confined areas, or travel long distances along a surface to an ignition source where they may ignite or flashback. Dangerous amounts of vapor can be created when refilling a hot burning device. Flame may be nearly invisible; approach fire with caution and be certain that fire is out. Do not open bottle in presence of a flame or ignition source. BURNING DEVICES MUST BE ALLOWED TO COOL DOWN COMPLETELY TO THE AMBIENT TEMPERATURE BEFORE REFILLING.
  • Ethanol Fuel, when not used correctly and safely can cause serious burns, destruction of property, or even death.

REGULATIONS

US GOVERNMENT REGULATIONS

SMARTFUEL™ Fireplace Fuel has been formulated to be safe for the environment. Like any flammable liquid, it is classified as hazardous materials (HAZMAT) but can be shipped in bottles of 1 liter or less under an ORM-D classification. Our proprietary formula has been tested by an independent laboratory; it emits primarily water vapor and non-hazardous CO2 when burned and is suitable for indoor use.

US TTB

The role of the Alcohol, Tobacco, Tax Trade Bureau (TTB) is to ensure that ethanol (alcohol) products are properly denatured and in compliance with Federal Law. SMARTFUEL™ has been submitted and is an approved formulation by the TTB.

US DOT

The Department of Transportation ensures that regulated hazardous materials (HAZMAT) are shipped in compliance with Federal Safety requirements. SMARTFUEL™ fuel, bottle, cap, shipping carton, and label have all been submitted and approved by the DOT. In addition, flammable liquids must be shipped by an approved HAZMAT carrier. The warehouse must be licensed to handle HAZMAT materials and employees must be trained and certified to ship HAZMAT materials.

You can rest assured that we have taken every step to ensure that SMARTFUEL™ is safe for you, and for the planet.
