At MacFarlane Energy we put a ‘green’ spin on traditional home heating oil in order to contribute to cleaning up the environment. We do this with ultra-low sulfur Bioheat® Fuel! Take a look at how these two innovations lead the way to reduced carbon emissions.
Here’s how our fuel is making way for a greener future:
The latest in clean, green home heating, Bioheat Fuel takes renewable resources such as agricultural byproducts and used cooking oils – known as biodiesel – and blends them with heating oil. The percentage of biodiesel varies from supplier to supplier, ranging anywhere from b5 (5% biodesel, 95% heating oil) to b100 (100% biodiesel).
Because it burns more cleanly, using Bioheat Fuel helps to reduce greenhouse gas emissions, too, lessening our impact on the planet!
Ultra-Low Sulfur Heating Oil
The other component of our Bioheat Fuel is ultra-low sulfur heating oil, also known as ULSHO. Sulfur content in heating oil has been significantly cut down. Because of this, today’s maximum allowable sulfur content in heating oil is 15 parts per million (ppm). This leads to healthier equipment – since sulfur content is reduced, as is sulfur buildup, a common cause of system malfunction and loss in heating efficiency.
The reduced sulfur content also helps with the reduction of greenhouse gas emissions!
As a trusted heating oil and home comfort provider for Massachusetts homeowners – and as residents of our beautiful planet – we also understand how important it is for us to do our best to take care of the environment. Rest easy knowing that as a MacFarlane Energy customer you’re on your way to living a greener lifestyle!
