Top 5 Reasons Why Bioheat® Fuel Is Better, Cleaner, and Safer
1. Bioheat® fuel is a renewable liquid heating fuel.
Bioheat® fuel is a blend of traditional heating fuel and renewable biodiesel. Biodiesel is made from a variety of natural materials that are recycled or agricultural by-products, like inedible corn oil, animal fats, used cooking oil, and other materials that would otherwise be wasted.
2. Bioheat® fuel produces fewer GHG and carbon emissions.
Bioheat® fuel helps to reduce greenhouse gas emissions (GHG) and carbon emissions in several ways. First and foremost, Bioheat® fuel is inherently low carbon because of its biodiesel content. And second, the biodiesel content in Bioheat® fuel also helps to reduce consumption of traditional heating fuels.
3. Bioheat® fuel is ready, available, and affordable.
Bioheat® fuel is abundant in the United States. The biodiesel industry employs more than 62,000 people and production continues to grow to meet increased demand. The best part? Switching to Bioheat® fuel is a cost-effective solution for everyone. It doesn’t require expensive equipment conversions, like electrification, and can be used in existing heating fuel systems at no additional cost.
4. Bioheat® fuel is low carbon, right now.
Bioheat® fuel is a low-carbon heating fuel that is contributing to reducing carbon emissions today. Electricity and other renewable options have plans to become low carbon eventually. But those options aren’t presently very clean to begin with.
5. Bioheat® fuel will reach net-zero emissions by 2050.
On top of Bioheat® fuel’s current low-carbon status, the industry has concrete plans to reach net-zero carbon emissions by 2050. There is an actionable plan in place to help fast-track Bioheat® fuel to become even better than it already is for our environment.
