160 years old Cardiff-based company, BCB International Ltd, have developed a groundbreaking environmentally-friendly solid cooking fuel called ‘FireDragon’. It can be used to light fires, cook food and warm drinks in all weather conditions.
Philippe Minchin from BCB says: “The FireDragon solid fuel is a world first, there is nothing else like it on the market. In recognition of its uniqueness, it has been granted patented status. FireDragon enables people to cook their food and warm their drinks fast in all weather conditions. It is made from sustainable, naturally derived bio-ethanol which means that it also helps to protect the environment.”
Outdoor enthusiasts are being urged to help kickstart the mass production of this waterproof and eco-friendly outdoor cooking fuel made in the UK. The business is seeking funds via the crowd-sourcing website, Kickstarter. The funds will enable the company to expand production.
The company started started producing the fuel on a small scale last year, which went into selected retail outlets. This has now sparked interest from international retailers. With this interest, BCB now need to design and fabricate specialised parts and tools to enable them to achieve mass production for worldwide distribution.
“We don’t have the financial means to do it alone. That’s why we are asking the publicto contribute what they can to help us clear the final hurdle to the mass production of a world beating product made here in the UK. They can contribute as little or as much as they like. Every pound donated brings us a step closer to introducing the ‘FireDragon’ fuel onto the world market and making outdoor cooking a safer and more eco-friendly experience”
