The unique blend of ultra-low sulfur heating oil and biodiesel, derived from renewable sources like soy, vegetable oils, animal fats, and even recycled restaurant oils, is the key to Bioheat fuel’s success. This innovative blend is created through an energy-efficient process called transesterification, resulting in a renewable energy resource that’s both eco-friendly and efficient.
Bioheat blends can range from as low as B2, containing 2% biodiesel, to higher blends like B20, which contains 20% biodiesel. The higher the blend, the greater the environmental benefits and cost savings. Therefore, Bioheat fuel offers:
- A cleaner burn than traditional heating oil
- Advocacy for the use of renewable resources
- An advantageous situation for both homeowners and the environment
