Hydrogen powered fireplace uses water for fuel.

You fill it up with ordinary tap water (or preferably de-ionized water). With the aid of electrolysis, powered by ordinary household electricity, the fireplace will separate the hydrogen from the oxygen in the water (water, H2O, is basically hydrogen and oxygen), ignite the hydrogen, add some oxygen to make the flame visible, and releases the rest of the oxygen into the room air. With this technology you get a warming fire without carbon monoxide, ashes, smoke, or the energy losses you always suffer in a chimney. The fireplace is supposed to produce 31,000 Btu/hour and it requires 0,5 gallons of water per hour. This smart eco friendly fireplace is called Aqueon, but at present it is a concept and a prototype. But we can always hope…brbr
