As we continue to decarbonize, we recognize it will take all technologies to fill our growing needs for energy diversity. Energy diversity refers to the presence of a variety of energy sources and technologies used to meet the energy needs of a society. Luckily, renewable Bioheat® fuel is already helping to lower carbon emissions and is widely available for homeowners to take advantage of to heat their homes. Keep reading to learn about all the benefits that Bioheat® fuel brings to the table now for the future of further diversifying our energy options.
The Flexibility of Bioheat® Fuel & The Future of Energy
As you may already know, the blend ratio of Bioheat® fuel can be adjusted based on the availability of biofuels and market conditions. This flexibility allows for the gradual increase of biofuel content over time as production capacity and supply chains for biofuels improve. By blending different proportions of biofuels, energy providers can adapt to changing circumstances and optimize the use of available renewable resources. This means that over the course of time, especially as we head toward 2050, there will be more net-zero B100 Bioheat® fuel that will also be widely available for homeowners to access to effectively, safely, and eco-consciously heat their homes.
The Many Benefits of Bioheat® Fuel for Energy Diversity
Bioheat® fuel is a renewable liquid heating fuel.
Bioheat® fuel is a blend of traditional heating fuel and renewable biodiesel. Biodiesel is made from a variety of natural materials that are recycled or agricultural by-products, like inedible corn oil, animal fats, used cooking oil, and other materials that would otherwise be wasted. By using biofuels in heating systems in our homes, we can reduce our dependence on finite fuel resources and further promote the utilization of renewable energy sources.
Bioheat® fuel is low carbon, right now.
Bioheat® fuel has a lower carbon footprint compared to conventional heating oil. In addition, it will continuously lower its carbon content over time as blend percentages increase. The biofuels used in the blend typically emit fewer greenhouse gas emissions during combustion.

Bioheat® fuel produces less GHG and carbon emissions.
Bioheat® fuel helps to reduce greenhouse gas emissions (GHG) and carbon emissions in several ways. First and foremost, Bioheat® fuel is inherently low carbon because of its biodiesel content. And second, the biodiesel content in Bioheat® fuel also helps to reduce consumption of traditional heating fuels. By using Bioheat® fuel, we can reduce carbon dioxide (CO2) and other harmful emissions associated with heating, contributing to climate change mitigation and improved air quality.
Bioheat® fuel is ready, available, and affordable.
Bioheat® fuel is abundant in the United States. The biodiesel industry employs more than 62,000 people, and production continues to grow to meet increased demand. The best part? Switching to Bioheat® fuel is a cost-effective solution for everyone. It doesn’t require expensive equipment conversions and can be used in existing heating fuel systems at no additional cost. This compatibility allows for an easier transition to a more sustainable energy source without substantial upfront costs or disruptions.
