Bioheat® Advantages

Bioheat® is safe and provides a cleaner, more complete
and energy efficient burn. It is a renewable energy source that reduces global warming gas emissions; it is also non-toxic, biodegradable, and suitable for sensitive environments. It actually extends equipment life and reduces periodic maintenance intervals. Bioheat® is made domestically from agricultural or recycled resources, reducing America’s dependence on foreign oil and creating jobs here at home.

Biodiesel and Bioheat® creates thousands of U.S. jobs throughout the entire production and distribution chain. According to a recent economic study, this year’s rejuvenated Biodiesel production will support more than 31,000 U.S. jobs and generate income of nearly $1.7 billion to be circulated throughout the economy. It also is expected to generate an estimated $345 million in federal tax revenue and $283 million in state and local tax revenues.
