Press Release, Cardiff, 05 March 2020: Independent tests have shown that an environmentally friendly fire lighting fuel made in the UK kills 99.999% of bacteria as a solid hand sanitiser.

The FireDragon heating fuel is already in service with the UK Ministry of Defence. It is manufactured in the UK by Cardiff-based BCB International Ltd. The fuel which is made from renewable waste vegetation has a high purity of bio-ethanol.

BCB International’s Managing Director, Andrew Howell, said: “At a time of a shortage of hand sanitisers on the market caused by the outbreak of the COVID-19 virus, we want the British public to know that our ‘FireDragon’ solid fuel can act as an effective hand sanitiser bar.”
