Biodiesel

BioDiesel-2014-header-banner
In 2013 American fuel companies displaced nearly

2 billion gallons of diesel fuel and heating oil by blending
American-made biodiesel fuels.

Bioheat® is a domestically produced, clean-burning, renewable fuel for traditional heating oil and diesel. Use of biodiesel as a renewable home heating and diesel engine fuel increases energy security, benefits our economy, and improves public health and the environment.

BioFilters-with-CaptionsBioheat® provides these benefits:

  • Performance – Bioheat® has self-cleaning properties that are easier on equipment, there by decreasing maintenance and increasing longevity. Plus, no equipment modifications are needed.
  • Improved Air Quality – Bioheat® burns cleaner than regular petroleum, decreasing the amount of carbon monoxide, sulfates, hydrocarbons, and particulate matter. It reduces emissions causing respiratory diseases in children.
  • Efficiency – According to the U.S. Dept of Agriculture, biodiesel “contains 5.5 times the amount of energy it takes to produce it (fossil energy ratio or energy balance)”, making it the most energy efficient form of fuel to produce.
  • Energy freedom – Biodiesel is produced in the U.S. supporting our nation’s farmers and local economies, reducing our dependence on foreign oil and improving national security.

Bioheat® is the alternative fuel available today. When you the know the facts, the biggest question should be: “Why isn’t everyone using it?”
