Gas fires

I have read that powerflue fires have been super ended by balanced flue gas fires which work on the same principle as a poerflue but have a glass front so no fan is required as fumes are drawn naturally outside. My previous powerflue  had an outlet that ran approximately 1 metre vertically and then bent for a further 1.5 metres to the outside.Will this convert to a power flue?
