Biodiesel is a cleaner alternative to traditional heating oil and natural gas. The environmental benefits are significant. Using more Bioheat reduces greenhouse gas emissions that cause climate change, air pollution and help make our communities healthier. Made from renewable and organic sources, biodiesel lowers the carbon content of heating oil. Research by leading authorities such as the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, U.S. Department of Agriculture and the California Air Resource Board indicates that biodiesel reduces greenhouse gas emissions (sulfur oxide, nitrogen oxide and carbon dioxide) from 50% to 86% compared to traditional heating oil or diesel fuel.
Bioheat is a fuel made by blending ultra-low sulfur heating oil (ULSHO) with biodiesel – a renewable energy resource made in America from soy, other vegetable oils, animal fats, recycled restaurant oils and other natural sources. By burning cleaner, bioheat typically also extends the life of heating equipment, which means that less furnaces and boilers will end up in a landfill.
Cubby Oil exclusively delivers our patented, groundbreaking ultra-low-sulfur B50 Bioheat SuperPlus™ mixture of fuel to homes in the Boston area. It will keep you warm at night and provide peace of mind as you help curb climate change. The “B” connotes the percentage of renewable biodiesel used. Cubby blends renewable biodiesel at a 50 percent clip, hence the B50 name, far exceeding its competitors, which use only 2 or 3 percent.
While the average cost of converting to an electric air-source heat pump system in Massachusetts is more than $21,000, Bioheat SuperPlus™ offers you a heat source that is both higher in efficiency, and affordability in comparison, with no need for system modifications. If your home uses regular fuel oil at the moment, it can use Bioheat SuperPlus™ right away.
The heating oil industry is committed to reducing carbon emissions with cleaner, renewable fuels. Read all about how Bioheat SuperPlus™ is the pathway to net-zero here.
Finally, the use of renewable fuels cuts reliance on imported oil and supports American energy security.
