Top 5 Reasons Why Bioheat® Fuel Is Better, Cleaner, and Safer

1. 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.

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.

3. Bioheat® fuel is ready, available, and affordable.

Bioheat® fuel is abundant in the United States and the biodiesel industry is continuing 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.
