The term “heating oil” conjures up different pictures for different folks. Because old-fashioned heating oil once held a reputation as being “dirty,” some people may still think about smelly, smoky heating oil from their grandma’s generation. The good news though – both for heating oil consumers and the environment – is that modern heating oil is a choice you can be proud of, since heating oil has only gotten better with time! In fact, heating oil has continued to evolve to be cleaner and greener, just within the last decade. Read on to learn more about what heating oil actually is, and how it differs from other types of oils – including its evolution from conventional heating oil to today’s cleaner, modern version.
So, what is Bioheat fuel, exactly? It is the heating oil industry’s official name for a fuel that consists of a blend of ultra-low-sulfur heating oil and renewable biodiesel that’s made from organic and recycled products, including soybean oil, inedible corn oil, canola, tallow, fats and algae.
Yes, that’s right – heating oil can be made by recycling other types of oils! Plus, with these natural and organic ingredients, it’s no wonder modern heating oil is so much cleaner than in the past. Just take a look at how the numbers stack up:
