What is Bioheat?
Our B5 blend consists of 95% heating oil and 5% biofuel made from American grown feedstocks and recycled cooking oil. It is a non-toxic, renewable, biodegradable eco-friendly fuel alternative that has many benefits.Bioheat from Wilcox Fuel costs about the same as conventional Oilheat and is delivered to you in the same manner as regular heating oil.
Testing conducted by the National Oilheat Research Alliance (NORA) found that a Bioheat blend of 80% low-sulfur heating oil and 20% biodiesel (B20) reduced sulfur oxide emissions by as much as 80% or more. Nitrogen oxide emissions were lowered by about 20%. In addition, carbon dioxide emissions can be lowered by 20%.
If everyone using heating oil used a B5 blend (5% biodiesel/95% heating oil), 400 million gallons of regular heating oil could be conserved. This would be a big step towards conserving oil, and reducing greenhouse gas emissions.
Bioheat is BETTER for the environment
Bioheat burns cleanly. It contains almost no sulfur, and significantly reduces particulates and greenhouse gases. Bioheat also reduces emissions of CO2, so you’ll be doing your part to reduce your family’s carbon footprint. Officials at the U.S. Department of Agriculture estimate that if everyone in the Northeast with an oil furnace used a B5 Bioheat blend, 50 million gallons of regular heating oil could be conserved annually.
Bioheat is BETTER for America
Purchasing Bioheat from Wilcox Energy supports American business and reduces our dependence on foreign oil. We’ve partnered with Greenleaf Biofuels, a Connecticut-based distributor that creates its Bioheat from American grown feedstocks and cooking oil recycled in the Northeast. Using domestically produced Bioheat supports our farmers, reduces transportation costs and pollutants, creates green collar jobs, improves our domestic energy structure, and keeps US dollars in the US. Also, by refusing to use palm oil, we are also doing our part to halt the destruction or rainforests in Malaysia and throughout Southeast Asia.
