Brunton GreenHeat is a gelled alcohol fuel that comes in a can (like Sterno), along with a pot stand/windscreen, for use as a backpacking or emergency stove. The "Eco-Friendly" moniker means that the alcohol is derived from plant sources rather than petroleum. I evaluated the Brunton GreenHeat stove by comparing it with Esbit solid fuel tablet and alcohol stoves in the lab and field.
