The heating oil industry has answered the call for clean-burning, alternative fuels with Bioheat Fuel – a blend of low-sulfur heating oil and biodiesel that significantly lowers a homeowner’s carbon footprint by reducing the amount of greenhouse gases produced by oil-fired home heating equipment.
A majority of our participating dealers deliver Bioheat Fuel because…
Biodiesel is made from a variety of natural, renewable materials including raw vegetable oils, used cooking oils, yellow grease and animal fats.
The amount of biodiesel blended into Bioheat Fuel varies from dealer to dealer. B5 Bioheat Fuel, as an example, contains 5% biodiesel and 95% low-sulfur heating oil. Modern home heating equipment has been rated for blends as high as 20% biodiesel, also known as B20 Bioheat Fuel.
Not at all! Bioheat Fuel can be used in all oil-fired heating equipment, and oil storage tanks do not need to be emptied or cleaned out for Bioheat Fuel to be delivered.
The price of Bioheat Fuel tracks very closely to the price of traditional heating oil, the difference typically only being fractions of a penny per gallon. However, Bioheat Fuel is more cost-effective in the long run, because its cleaner burn means a cleaner, longer-lasting system with fewer needed repairs.
As mentioned, Bioheat Fuel burns cleaner than traditional heating oil because it contains renewable biodiesel. This reduces greenhouse gas emissions of Sulfur, Nitrogen Oxides and Carbon Dioxide.
In essence, Bioheat Fuel is the answer to the question, “What can the heating oil industry do to promote a green future?”
