Traditional heating oil has been reformulated and infused with renewable Bioheat fuel to make it more environmentally friendly and more energy efficient. That’s why every gallon we deliver to your tank is now B20 Bioheat.
Our Bioheat consists of 80% ultra-low-sulfur heating oil blended with 20% biodiesel—a renewable energy resource produced in America that’s often made from the fatty acids found in soy, corn and other vegetable oils.
Here are some key benefits of Bioheat fuel.
Our clean-burning B20 Bioheat produces fewer greenhouse gas emissions than natural gas.* Methane—the main component of natural gas—has the capacity to trap so much heat in the atmosphere that over one century, one ton of this gas causes 32 times as much warming as one ton of carbon dioxide.**
The production of Bioheat is extremely efficient, and the fuel itself is nontoxic, biodegradable, and promotes better air quality and environmental sustainability by reducing greenhouse gas emissions.
Bioheat also reduces energy consumption by providing a cleaner, more complete and energy-efficient burn. As a result, there is less wear and tear on heating equipment.
The biodiesel industry supports more than 60,000 U.S. jobs, generating billions of dollars in GDP, household income, and tax revenues. That impact is projected to grow significantly as biodiesel production increases.
Biodiesel also creates opportunities for business owners. For example, restaurant owners can sell used cooking oil—once a waste product—to biodiesel producers as an additional source of revenue. Domestically made, Bioheat also helps our economy by helping meet our nation’s energy needs without incurring the cost for new land use or drilling, or paying premium prices for imported fuels.
Using B20 Bioheat to warm your home saves you money. Your heating system will not only burn fuel more efficiently, it will also last longer and require fewer repairs.
Bioheat can be used in your existing heating system without modification – which means you won’t need to make a further investment in equipment to enjoy Bioheat’s benefits. Further, getting Bioheat deliveries in the Delaware Valley may extend heating equipment life while reducing heating maintenance and service calls.
