The most recent iteration of heating fuel is called Bioheat® Fuel. As of July 1, 2018, New York adopted a new standard that requires any heating oil sold within Nassau, Suffolk and Westchester counties to contain at least 5% biodiesel (B5).
What is Bioheat® Fuel?
Bioheat® Fuel is a blend of biodiesel and ultra-low sulfur heating oil. Biodiesel is produced from a variety of renewable resources, such as plant oils, animal fats, recycled grease, and even algae, making it one of the most sustainable fuels on the planet.
- Bioheat® Fuel produces the same satisfying heat as standard heating oil
- According to studies, Bioheat® Fuel performs just as well as, if not better than, conventional heating oil.
- You don’t have to make any modifications to your heating system or purchase new equipment
- Performance standards for Bioheat® Fuel blends to B20 (or 20% biodiesel) have been approved by ASTM International, an organization which sets industry standard for fuels and lubricants.
