Top Environmental Benefits of Bioheat® Fuel
Earth Day is April 22nd, and on this holiday, many people pause to take stock of their carbon footprint. Are you looking for easy ways to use less energy and positively impact our planet? Read this blog post to learn more about why Bioheat® fuel is one of the most environmentally friendly, affordable, and accessible fuel options available today.
Reasons to Celebrate Earth Day Every Day with Bioheat® Fuel
1. Bioheat® fuel helps lower GHG and carbon emissions.
Bioheat® fuel produces significantly fewer greenhouse gas emissions (GHG) and carbon emissions than traditional heating fuels. In fact, Bioheat® fuel is inherently low carbon because of its biodiesel content. Additionally, the biodiesel content in Bioheat® fuel also helps to reduce the consumption of traditional heating fuels.
2. Bioheat® fuel is a renewable liquid heating fuel.
What makes Bioheat® fuel renewable? It is made by blending 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.
3. Bioheat® fuel supports local jobs and is available today.
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.
The Bioheat® fuel industry is on its way to reaching 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.
