Better, Cleaner, Safer
Renewable Energy That Is Ready & Available Now
Bioheat® heating fuel is the best renewable energy option for you and the environment. It is a renewable liquid heating fuel that is readily available, made in the US, produces significantly fewer carbon emissions, and requires no expensive conversions. The Bioheat® fuel and biodiesel industry is committed to reaching net-zero carbon emissions and has a plan to achieve that goal by 2050.
Bioheat® Fuel & Biodiesel: A Solution for a Carbon-Free Future
No Significant Conversion Costs
Bioheat® fuel is compatible with existing heating systems and biodiesel is compatible with existing diesel vehicles. There are no expensive conversions needed to start using Bioheat® fuel or biodiesel with compatible equipment and vehicles. Bioheat® fuel is available in blends ranging from 5% biodiesel (B5) to 20% biodiesel (B20) that can be used now.
Available Now & Growing
Bioheat® fuel and biodiesel are available now and will continue to expand to meet demand sustainably. Bioheat® fuel and biodiesel are made from readily available feedstocks, all of which are waste products and by-products of existing food supply lines. The industry currently supports 62,000 US jobs, a number that is steadily rising.
Fewer Emissions Today
Current Bioheat® fuel and biodiesel blends produce up to 50% fewer greenhouse gas emissions than traditional oil and diesel fuels. Bioheat® fuel is a blended heating fuel that produces significantly fewer emissions and utilizes renewable resources that would otherwise be wasted.
Net-Zero Emissions by 2050
Bioheat® fuel is on its way to net-zero emissions, and plans to increase to a B50 (50% biodiesel) blend could immediately reduce emissions by 40%. The industry is committed to greenhouse gas reduction and is on track to reach 100% renewable by 2050.
Provided by Local Businesses
Bioheat® fuel is delivered by local, multigenerational companies with a vested interest in their communities. They live, work, and support the local economy and truly care about the customers they serve.
Dependable in Cold Climates
Bioheat® heating fuel is the most efficient heating option for cold weather. Unlike electric heat pumps, Bioheat® fuel heating equipment is designed for extremely cold conditions. With the combination of high-efficiency equipment and Bioheat® heating fuel’s high heat output, consumers can heat spaces well while keeping costs low.
