Besides fuelling cars, bioethanol is often used for house heating. Unlike using traditional gases and fuels, using bioethanol is safe both indoors and outdoors and has no restrictions, which makes portable bioethanol fireplaces that can be moved from indoors to outdoors a popular choice among the house owners who want to heat their houses in an environmentally friendly and flexible way, whether it is an indoor or outdoor fireplace.

Also, bioethanol fuel is used in the chemical and coatings industries.
