How do you vent a Vent-Free fireplace?

I have a vent-free fireplace in a rental house I just bought but Section 8 code only allows vented. Anyone have a pic or link or could describe how you would vent this through the wall behind the fireplace. What kind of materials would you use?

I don't think a vent free can be vented without affecting it's UL listing. With that being said...

That would be a good enough reason for me to be able to turn down a rental application for Section 8. I have only rented to one in over 25 years and will never do it again.
Get rid or it or buy one that can be vented. Not cheap and the vent pipes really expencive.
Another way to go is replace it with an electric one.
