It’s clean, it’s green and it’s made from a bean. It’s biofuel. One of the “hottest” things to happen in home comfort, biofuel, home heating oil blended with biodegradable substances such as soybean oil, is non-toxic and renewable, making it kind to our earth as well as our home heating systems.
What is Biofuel
Biofuel is produced from living organisms or metabolic by-products such as waste plant and animal matter. According to Alternative Energy News, “In order to be considered a biofuel the fuel must contain over 80 percent renewable materials. It is originally derived from the photosynthesis process and can therefore often be referred to as a solar energy source.”
Biofuels represent a large growth opportunity around the world and have an important role to play in displacing the fossil fuels the world has relied upon in the past as a cleaner, renewable alternative.
Availability of Biofuel
Unlike fossil fuels, biofuels are a renewable energy source which are derived from harvested crops…theoretically unlimited. The fuel is produced by using ethanol from the naturally grown plant matter such as corn, corn cob, sugar cane, soybeans, flaxseed, rapeseed, vegetable oils, etc which allows for a more environmentally friendly earth. Oil heat is a safer option than gas and is much more environmentally friendly and cost-efficient. Plus, it supports local businesses.
