Heating oil has evolved dramatically in the past couple of decades.
Thanks to advancements in technology, today’s heating oil is much cleaner than it used to be, and, with the development of Bioheat® fuel, is much better for the environment.
Bioheat fuel is a remarkable blend of ultra-low sulfur heating oil (ULSHO) and biodiesels. This unique combination yields a fuel that not only burns cleaner but also presents a multitude of benefits. It reduces environmental impact dramatically from traditional heating oil while simultaneously prolonging the lifespan of your heating system, all while remaining cost-effective for your budget.
Let’s get into more detail about Bioheat fuel and all it can do for your Cape Cod home with dependable heating oil delivery from The Fuel Company.
Biodiesels are a fuel derived from natural and renewable resources. Here are some commonly utilized biodiesels in Bioheat fuel:
There continue to be advancements in the development of biodiesels. A recent study carried out by Michigan State University proposes that the cultivation of switchgrass, a biofuel crop, on underutilized agricultural land can make a valuable contribution to environmental conservation.
This not only provides a new source of biodiesel for Bioheat fuel but also brings advantages to our nation’s farmers by generating extra income from previously unproductive land. The dual benefit of this approach promotes sustainability while enhancing agricultural livelihoods.
The difference in Bioheat fuels is determined by the amount of biodiesels they contain.
Bioheat fuel suppliers commonly use the letter B followed by a number to indicate the biodiesel content in their fuel. This numeric value represents the percentage of biodiesel present. Additionally, different names are used to describe the fuel depending on its biodiesel percentage.
ULSHO strictly adheres to rigorous standards that cap the sulfur content at 15 parts-per-million (ppm) or less. This impressive reduction of 99% in sulfur levels compared to heating oil from three decades ago marks a substantial advancement. As a result, you can now enjoy cleaner and more environmentally friendly heating options.
By eliminating nearly all sulfur from heating oil, we have achieved a remarkable 70% reduction in greenhouse gas emissions compared to conventional alternatives. This extraordinary progress not only underscores our unwavering dedication to the environment but also emphasizes the substantial influence we can wield in the fight against climate change.
Bioheat fuel, with its cleaner burning properties compared to traditional No. 2 heating oil, boosts the efficiency of your home’s furnace or boiler, leading to substantial savings on heating costs. Moreover, Bioheat fuel reduces the build-up of deposits on heat registers, minimizing wear and tear on your heating system. This results in fewer breakdowns, lower repair expenses, and potentially extends the lifespan of your heating system by several years.
Bioheat fuel provides numerous environmental benefits, with its most notable advantage being the substantial reduction of greenhouse gas emissions. The utilization of biodiesels leads to an even greater reduction. As a crucial component of the heating oil industry’s commitment to achieving net-zero carbon emissions by 2050, Bioheat fuel plays a pivotal role in this endeavor.
By increasing the utilization of biodiesels in Bioheat fuel, we reduce our reliance on oil drilling, both domestically and internationally.
By transforming these products into biodiesels for Bioheat fuel, we are effectively diverting waste from landfills and promoting sustainability.
