What is Bioheat?

Bioheat is today’s clean-burning alternative to traditional home heating oil.

It is made by mixing the oil with Biodiesel, a renewable energy resource made in America from fatty acids found in soy, corn and other vegetable oils, animal fats, recycled restaurant oils and other natural sources. The industry is even exploring the use of algae, pennycress and other organic matter.

The blend is usually 2% to 20% Biodiesel per gallon, and Bioheat is referred to by that percentage, such as B5 for 5% Biodiesel.

Today Bioheat production facilities exist across the nation and are capable of making two billion gallons of Biodiesel per year.

You do not need to make any changes to your furnace, boiler or tank to begin using Bioheat. Your fuel will burn cleaner, your system will stay at peak efficiency longer and you will have done a good thing for our environment.

Fuel-grade Bioheat must meet strict industry specifications, and is the only alternative fuel to have fully completed the health effects testing requirements of the 1990 Clean Air Act Amendments.

Raw vegetable oil cannot meet Bioheat fuel specifications, is not registered with the EPA and is not a legal motor fuel.

So big a deal, we blend it into ALL of our heating oil and diesel fuel!

At Ehrhart Energy, we are fully committed to bringing the many benefits of Bioheat into every home and business we service throughout the Finger Lakes.

In fact a major difference between our competitors and us is that all of the heating oil and diesel we sell contains a 10% blend of Biodiesel. Not only does that cut down on fossil fuel usage; it also helps the environment.
