Bioheat is a blend of traditional heating oil and Biodiesel, a renewable, plant-based fuel source.
All fats and oils used to produce Biodiesel are coproducts or byproducts of agriculture. Soybeans—highly favored for producing Biodiesel—have traditionally been grown primarily to make a high-protein meal for humans and livestock. Because Biodiesel has increased the world demand for soybeans, the increased production has significantly reduced the cost of this and other healthy plant-based proteins.
In 2010, the U.S. biodiesel industry produced (from soybean oil) enough soybean meal for 57 billion servings of protein like those used in global hunger programs.
