The Role of Bioheat® Fuel in Energy Diversity

Share this post

The movement toward lower emissions and a diverse energy future means that we must explore and take advantage of all technologies available to help us shrink our collective carbon footprint. Energy diversity refers to a variety of energy sources and technologies used to meet a society’s energy needs. Lucky for us, renewable Bioheat® fuel is widely available for homeowners to use right now and will continue to lower its carbon content over time. Read this blog post to learn about all the benefits that come with choosing Bioheat® fuel to further diversify our energy mix.

The Energy Diversity Benefits of Bioheat® Fuel

Bioheat® fuel is a renewable energy source.

Bioheat® fuel is a blend of traditional heating fuel and renewable biodiesel. Biodiesel is made from a variety of natural materials including agricultural by-products, like soybean oil, animal fats, used cooking oil, and other materials that would otherwise be wasted. By using Bioheat® fuel in heating systems in our homes, we can reduce our dependence on finite fuel resources and further promote the utilization of renewable energy sources.

Bioheat® fuel produces less GHG and carbon emissions.

Bioheat® fuel is inherently low carbon because of its biodiesel content, and that biodiesel content helps Bioheat® fuel reduce our consumption of traditional heating fuels. By using Bioheat® fuel, we can lower carbon dioxide (CO2) and other harmful emissions associated with heating, contributing to climate change mitigation and improved air quality.

Bioheat® fuel is low carbon, right now.

Bioheat® fuel has a small carbon footprint and it is the only fuel that will continuously lower its carbon content over time as blend percentages increase. The biodiesel used in the blend typically emits fewer greenhouse gas emissions during combustion.

Bioheat® fuel is available and affordable.

Bioheat® fuel is abundant in the United States. The biodiesel industry employs more than 75,000 people and counting, with production continuing to grow. Additionally, using Bioheat® fuel is a cost-effective and economical solution for everyone. Bioheat® fuel can be used in existing heating fuel systems with no equipment modifications. This compatibility allows for an easier transition to a more sustainable energy source.

Bioheat® fuel is on its way to net-zero carbon emissions.

The Bioheat® fuel industry is uniquely positioned to continue reducing its carbon emissions and has initiatives in place to achieve this goal. There is an actionable plan in place to help fast-track Bioheat® fuel to become even better than it already is for our environment.
