A Cleaner, Better, and Safer Fuel Available Now

1. Bioheat® fuel is made from renewable resources.

Bioheat® fuel is made by blending traditional heating fuel with renewable biodiesel. Biodiesel is renewable because it comes from natural materials that are either recycled or waste by-products, like inedible corn oil, animal fats, and used cooking oil. Biodiesel requires no land for drilling and makes use of existing resources that would otherwise be wasted.

2. Bioheat® fuel produces fewer greenhouse gas emissions.

Bioheat® fuel helps to reduce greenhouse gas emissions and carbon emissions in two ways. First, Bioheat® fuel is inherently low in carbon because of its biodiesel content. And second, the biodiesel content in Bioheat® fuel also helps to reduce the overall use of traditional heating fuel.

3. Bioheat® fuel is abundant and available.

Bioheat® fuel is ready and available for use in New York today. Production of biodiesel is fully prepared to meet increased demand and will continue to do so as more homes and businesses in New York switch to Bioheat® fuel. Bioheat® fuel is compatible with existing fuel heating systems and requires no extra expenses or conversions.

4. Bioheat® fuel is a low-carbon option, right now.

Tackling climate change is an uphill battle and what makes Bioheat® fuel a standout renewable energy option is that it is contributing to reducing carbon emissions right now. It is a low-carbon heating fuel that contributes to decarbonization like compound interest. The sooner you get started, even in small increments, the greater results down the road.

5. Bioheat® fuel will become carbon-free by 2050.

On top of Bioheat® fuel’s current low-carbon status, the industry plans to continue to evolve the fuel so that it can achieve net-zero carbon emissions by 2050. There is an actionable plan in place to help fast-track Bioheat® fuel to become even better than it already is for our environment.
