New Bioheat® Mandates Create a Big Step Forward
Utilize a Cleaner, Greener Fuel for Whole Home Heating
Bioheat® is getting support from states all over the Northeast as state governments see the environmental, economic, and consumer benefits to a cleaner-burning home heating fuel.
What’s better? You can enjoy those benefits when you get your Bioheat delivered by Frank Lamparelli!
What are the Bioheat Mandates?
Our neighboring states of Connecticut and Rhode Island have passed new Bioheat mandates into law.
On July 12th, 2021, Connecticut Governor Ned Lamont signed a mandate that requires all heating oil delivered in the state be a minimum of B5 Bioheat by 2020. The B5 signifies that at least 5% of the fuel is biodiesel, which is blended with previously mandated ultra-low sulfur heating oil (ULSHO). The requirements are increased to B10 by 2025, B15 by 2030, B20 by 2034, and B50 by 2035.
Rhode Islander Governor Daniel Mckee signed the state’s Bioheat mandate on July 13, 2021. It currently mandates B5 Bioheat, and that is increased to B10 by 2023, B20 by 2025, and B50 by 2030.
New York is also considering a new Bioheat mandate as well.
Frank Lamparelli is already ahead of the curve, as our Bioheat fuel already contains up to 20% biodiesels, and that percentage is only going to continue to grow!
What Makes Bioheat Better Than “Regular” Heating Oil?
Bioheat is much better for the environment than traditional #2 heating oil, with 80% less sulfur dioxide, up to 30% less nitrogen dioxide, and 20% less carbon dioxide. Those greenhouse gases are major contributors to climate change. In fact, our Bioheat is even cleaner burning than natural gas!
You don’t have to replace, retrofit, or alter your home’s furnace or boiler to enjoy the benefits of Bioheat. Not only does it work perfectly with home heating systems, Bioheat is better for them!
Between the removal of sulfur and the clean burning of biodiesels, Bioheat leaves fewer deposits in your heating system’s heat exchangers. There’s less wear and tear on your parts and internal components. Your furnace or boiler runs more efficiently, saving you money on monthly energy costs.
Not only that, Bioheats cleaner burning means fewer breakdowns and a longer life for your home heating system.
Bioheat is Also Good for the Local Economy
There are about 10 biodiesel producers here in the Northeastern United States that supply the biodiesel used to make Bioheat. Those producers support nearly 5,000 full-time, good-paying jobs with $175 million in annual wages. They are also responsible for creating over $1.2 billion in annual economic activity.
