New Yorkers know that Bioheat® Fuel is a smart choice to reduce greenhouse gas emissions while keeping warm and cozy all winter, because the renewable biofuels used to make Bioheat® fuel reduce carbon dioxide, sulfur and other particulate emissions.
The New York heating industry has been leading the nation in creating standards for liquid renewable heating fuels to reach net-zero carbon emissions by 2050.
New Yorkers are already enjoying the benefits of clean, green Bioheat® fuel! All fuel delivered to New York City and Nassau, Suffolk and Westchester Counties meets the region-wide B5 Bioheat® fuel standard, and many dealers are already delivering blends up to B20 – and their customers didn’t have to change their heating equipment at all!
- Bioheat® fuel can be used in any oil-powered boiler, furnace, water heater or burner already in place.
- New York State offers tax credits up to $0.20 per gallon for anyone using Bioheat® fuel with blends between 6 percent and 20 percent renewable biodiesel.
