Cubby Offers the Fuel of the Future: Environmentally Friendly Biodiesel Heating Oil

Cubby is the only Boston area energy company that delivers ultra- clean, ultra-efficient B40 Bioheat. It will make you feel proud to heat your home with “oil.”

What is Bioheat?

Bioheat™ is made by combining renewable Biodiesel with ultra-low sulfur heating oil. The number 40 reflects the percentage of the fuel that comes from renewable sources.

In our case, that’s 40% of every gallon you get. This is much higher than most of our competitors, who claim to offer Bioheat, but only put in 2 or 3 % renewable Biodiesel because it costs them more than regular heating oil.

We think that the future of our planet is worth it, and include a higher amount of renewable fuel, without passing on the cost to our customers. That’s right — you get a better, cleaner product, but at our regular competitive rate!

Best of all, you don’t need to make any modifications to your system. We deliver it just like the old-fashioned stuff, but that’s where the comparison ends.

What makes Cubby’s Bioheat so special?

By mixing in renewable biodiesel at a 40% blend, several really important things happen:

  1. Harmful greenhouse gas emissions are cut by 30%, immediately. In fact, our fuel emits fewer harmful greenhouse gas emissions than Natural Gas! Hard to believe? Well, a lot has changed in the last few years. According to a comprehensive report conducted by Brookhaven National Laboratory and presented to Congress in 2015 by the National Oilheat Research Alliance (NORA), biofuel blends containing 20% or more Bioheat produce lower greenhouse gas emissions than natural gas!

    • We use biodiesel that is sourced locally from waste products like used cooking oil, plants, and other renewable resources. So, we are not just improving the air quality, we’re reducing landfill use.
    • You get higher heating efficiency and easier maintenance, since our ultra-low-sulfur B40 Bioheat leaves fewer deposits on heat exchangers. You should experience fewer breakdowns, and extended system lifespan as well.
  2. It enables us to take advantage of breakthroughs in heating equipment efficiency, particularly those coming from Europe, which requires the combination of ultra-low sulfur fuel and Bioheat. You can check out some of the current options we sell here: modern oil heating equipment.

5 Bioheat Benefits

  1. Reduces U.S. reliance on imported oil; by replacing millions of gallons of petroleum-based heating oil, American homes will be far less vulnerable to any supply disruptions from overseas unrest or geopolitics.
  2. Supports tens of thousands of U.S. jobs and generates income of more than $1.5 billion that gets circulated throughout the American economy
  3. Relies on renewable, biodegradable, nontoxic resources; our country can continually produce new supplies throughout the nation, and it is virtually free of sulfur and other impurities.
  4. Saves wear and tear on equipment and it’s kind to the environment. Because it has a much lower sulfur content, Bioheat fuel burns cleaner than standard No. 2 heating oil. The result is fewer breakdowns, longer equipment life, better fuel efficiency and a cleaner environment.
  5. Requires no equipment refits—if your heating system uses regular fuel oil, it can use Bioheat fuel right now!

The next time someone says oil is oil; please ask them to call us. Oil quality can vary from dealer to dealer, but Cubby delivers only ultra-low-sulfur B40 Bioheat to our customers.
