Understanding Bioheat® Fuel

A Green Fuel Right Now, and for the Future

Today, more than 125 production plants around the country make biodiesel. The United States biodiesel industry now produces about three billion gallons of biodiesel annually.

Increased production isn’t just about achieving a cleaner environment. It’s about building a stronger economy too. The biodiesel industry supports nearly 60,000 jobs and generates billions of dollars in GDP, household income, and tax revenues.

Why Biodiesel Is Carbon Neutral

Transitioning to Bioheat fuel is a win-win situation: it’s been proven to reduce emissions because it is low-carbon heating —and it doesn’t require any expensive system upgrades in your home.

The biodiesel blend in Bioheat fuel is composed of various organic products, including vegetable oils, animal fats, and even algae. New studies have also shown the viability of using various grasses for the production of biofuel.

Biodiesel is considered a biogenic fuel that eliminates carbon output. By contrast, when traditional fossil fuels that do not contain biodiesel are burned, they take carbon that was stored in soil and put 100% of that carbon into the atmosphere.

The combustion of biofuels and other biogenic energy sources recycles carbon-dioxide emissions through renewable plant materials and other biomass feedstocks. That’s why you’ll keep hearing a lot about net-zero carbon emissions in the years ahead.

Getting to Net-Zero Carbon Emissions

Lawman’s Oil started to deliver B20 Bioheat Plus® fuel to our customers a few years ago. We did this because we’re committed to realistic green energy solutions that not only protect the environment but also enhance energy efficiency, savings, and comfort for all of our customers.

We work in conjunction with the heating oil industry, which is dedicated to achieving net-zero carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions for heating oil by 2050. This means your heating fuel will eventually have a carbon footprint of zero.

Timeline for Reducing Carbon Emissions

Take a look at the impressive strides we can take in reducing carbon emissions by increasing biofuel blends. This is in accordance with the goals the heating oil industry set forth a few years ago.
