When it comes to heating your home or business while reducing your environmental impact, The Fuel Company provides you with the cleanest fuel on Cape Cod. We exclusively deliver environmentally friendly B20 Bioheat Plus® fuel, which offers an outstanding alternative to traditional heating oil and natural gas.
Bioheat® fuel comes in a variety of blends, which are classified according to the percentage of renewable fuel they include. B5 Bioheat fuel is made with 5% biodiesel, B10 includes 10%, etc. Our B20 Bioheat Plus fuel is a blended fuel that is made up of 80% ultra-low-sulfur heating oil and 20% biodiesel. The ultra-low-sulfur heating oil (ULSHO) has almost all of the sulfur removed, going from 4,000 ppm (parts per million) to a mere 15 ppm! That alone produces a fuel with dramatically cleaner emissions.
ULSHO is just the beginning! Biodiesel takes cleaner-burning operations and eco-friendliness to the next level. Biodiesel is made from natural, carbon-neutral, and renewable resources, including:
plant oils such as soybean, corn, rapeseed, palm and sunflower
recycled cooking oils from commercial kitchens like restaurants and event spaces
B20 Bioheat Plus fuel reduces CO2 emissions by 14.6% from the emissions of traditional heating oil.
This clean-burning, high-efficiency blend of biodiesel and ULSHO outshines standard heating oil in every possible way. So it should be easy to understand why The Fuel Company is working hard to provide our customers with blends containing as much biodiesel as possible. We’re committed to reducing carbon emissions and promoting a greener Cape Cod. We’ve set a target to provide B100 by 2050.
Bioheat fuel is the only drop-in alternative fuel available today. You don’t need to replace or modify your oil-fired furnace or boiler to use Bioheat fuel. It works just like traditional heating oil but is so much better in many ways!
Cleaner burning. The biodiesel used in B20 Bioheat Plus fuel is carbon neutral. When combined with the dramatically lower sulfur content, greenhouse gas emissions are dramatically reduced. How great is the reduction? Your carbon emissions are cut by nearly 15%. Our B20 Bioheat Plus fuel burns more cleanly than natural gas! This helps to make the Cape Cod air even cleaner.
Better for your home. You benefit now and in the long run by using B20 Bioheat Plus fuel from The Fuel Company.
The biodiesel in Bioheat Plus fuel is easier on your home’s heating system because it leaves fewer deposits than traditional heating oil. That reduction in deposits means that Bioheat Plus fuel causes less wear and tear on your heating system’s parts. Using our B20 Bioheat Plus fuel may reduce heating systems’ breakdowns, and the life expectancy of your boiler or furnace may be lengthened!
Better for the environment. The reduction in greenhouse gas emissions is only one way that B20 Bioheat Plus fuel is more environmentally friendly for your home’s heating than traditional heating oil and other power sources, such as electricity or natural gas . The biodiesel in the B20 Bioheat Plus fuel delivered by The Fuel Company is from right here in New England, thus putting to use materials that might have gone into landfills.
Bioheat Plus fuel is also a superior alternative to natural gas. Natural gas is composed mostly of methane, which can be as much as 86 times more harmful than carbon dioxide if it leaks into the atmosphere before being burned. Heating your home with natural gas also costs more than doing so with Bioheat Plus fuel. Although a gallon of Bioheat Plus fuel costs more than a comparable amount of natural gas, it generates 50% more heat. As a result, you could save hundreds of dollars on your heating bills every year with Bioheat Plus fuel. And that’s before factoring in a costly gas conversion!
By heating your home with our B20 Bioheat Plus fuel, you are helping to protect and preserve the Cape’s natural beauty.
Better for our economy. Because 20% of our B20 Bioheat Plus fuel is biodiesel, you’re using less oil. That means less crude oil needs to be imported, which helps to improve our country’s energy independence and supports energy creation right here in America.
The production of biodiesel and Bioheat fuel supports tens of thousands of new jobs, including right here in New England. Those businesses and jobs generate more than $1.5 billion for the U.S. economy.
