Celebrate Earth Day by Learning the Environmental Benefits of Bioheat® Fuel

Today, you have tons of options for making your home more eco-friendly. In the warmer months, you can choose a ductless mini-split air conditioning system that allows you to cool rooms individually, and in the cooler months, you can use a heating oil like Bioheat® fuel. This Earth Day, check out all the reasons why Bioheat® fuel is the top choice for protecting and supporting our home planet.

What Is Bioheat® Fuel?

Your home relies on heating oil through the winter to stay warm and comfortable. Tons of MA homeowners choose Bioheat® fuel in place of traditional heating oil because it incorporates percentages of renewable substances like agricultural by-products, animal fats, and used cooking oil that would otherwise be discarded as waste.

Top Environmental Benefits of Bioheat® Fuel

Bioheat® Fuel Reduces Greenhouse Gas Emissions

Bioheat® fuel helps to reduce greenhouse gas emissions (GHG) and carbon emissions in several ways. First, Bioheat® fuel is inherently low carbon because of its biodiesel content. And second, the biodiesel content in Bioheat® fuel helps to reduce the consumption of traditional fuels. By using Bioheat® fuel, we can reduce carbon dioxide (CO2) and other emissions associated with heating, contributing to climate change mitigation and improved air quality. Depending on the blend, biodiesel and renewable diesel can reduce emissions by more than 80% compared to using petroleum.

Bioheat® Fuel Has a Low Carbon Footprint

Bioheat® fuel has a lower carbon footprint compared to conventional heating oil. In addition, it will continuously lower its carbon content over time as blend percentages increase. Using it in your home means you can immediately reduce your carbon footprint and be a part of Bioheat® fuel’s net-zero carbon emissions goal.

Bioheat® Fuel Is a Renewable Heating Fuel

Bioheat® fuel is a blend of 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 organic materials. By using biofuels in heating systems in our homes, we can reduce our dependence on finite fuel resources and further promote the utilization of renewable energy sources.
