- 3:52 pm - July 29th, 2020


Bioheat® Fuel has found a permanent home in New York City and Long Island homes – and they couldn’t be happier about it! From the environmental to the economic impact the fuel has had on homeowners throughout New York, there’s no shortage of reasons why New Yorkers would love Bioheat Fuel.

Here are just a few reasons why Bioheat Fuel is an alternative energy source that’s here to stay!

Environmental Benefits

Bioheat Fuel is extremely clean burning. Testing conducted by the National Oilheat Research Alliance (NORA) found that B20 Bioheat Fuel (a blend of 20% biodiesel and 80% low-sulfur heating oil) reduced sulfur oxide emissions by as much as 80%, reduced Nitrogen oxide emissions by about 20%, and carbon dioxide emissions by another 20%.

Economic Benefits

The biodiesel component is produced from domestically grown renewable resources and refined right here in the United States! Bioheat Fuel supports our nation’s farmers, and biodiesel’s production has created more than 62,000 jobs and $2.6 billion in wages paid.

Homeowner Benefits

There are also a few great things about Bioheat Fuel that homeowners can be glad about as it affects them directly:

  • No modifications are required to the burner, tank or heating equipment in order to use Bioheat Fuel

  • Produces the same satisfying heat you’d expect from traditional home heating oil

  • Lubricates the heating system, helping to maintain its efficiency and reducing the risks of equipment breakdown

Homes throughout New York are utilizing Bioheat Fuel blended with at least 5% biodiesel. So you may not even realize it, but you’re enjoying a cleaner-burning alternative home heating fuel that brings many benefits to the table for our state and our country!
