Bioheat® fuel is an ultra-low carbon liquid heating fuel that is doing its part for our environment, right now. It produces significantly fewer emissions because it is made with net-zero carbon biodiesel. Biodiesel comes from renewable resources, is nontoxic, biodegradable, and promotes better air quality. Bioheat® fuel is on its way to reaching net-zero carbon emissions by 2050, and using it now will contribute to decarbonization immediately. Here are some fast facts about the environmental benefits of Bioheat® fuel:
Climate Change Is Affecting Daily Life
And is why reducing greenhouse gas emissions is more important than ever. Watch this quick video to get a breakdown of rising global temperatures, the effects on oceans and our environment, and how low-carbon energy like Bioheat® fuel can be a part of the solution to protecting our planet.
Why Bioheat® Fuel Is Better, Cleaner & Safer for Our Environment
Your Bioheat® fuel is made by blending heating fuel with renewable biodiesel. Biodiesel is made from a variety of readily available feedstocks. All these feedstocks are waste products or by-products of existing food supply lines, reducing greenhouse gas emissions significantly. Because a variety of surplus feedstocks are used, biodiesel and renewable diesel achieve emissions reductions of at least 50% compared to petroleum diesel, which means cleaner air and significant health benefits.
Bioheat® Fuel Is the Solution to a Carbon-Free Future
Bioheat® fuel is the most actionable and equitable solution to reduce carbon emissions because it is a low-carbon heating fuel that doesn’t require expensive conversions in your home, and the industry has a solid plan to continue to reduce emissions.
- Now – B10 (10% biodiesel)
Eliminates 100 million gallons of heating oil, the equivalent of making 102,000 homes carbon neutral, and biodiesel-blended heating oil also reduces SOx, CO2, particulate matter, and mercury emissions (NESCAUM)
- 2023 – B20 by 2023 (20% biodiesel)
Produces a 14.6% reduction in CO2 emissions and better GHG performance than natural gas (NESCAUM)
- 2030 – B50 (50% biodiesel)
Eliminates 500 million gallons of heating oil and 4.29 million metric tons of carbon
- 2050 – B100 (100% biodiesel)
Eliminates 1 billion gallons of heating oil and 8.59 million metric tons of carbon
