Benefits of Devine Bioheat on The Environment
Posted on February 15th, 2023 by Devine Bros
Are you looking for more ways to lead a green life this new year? We have an answer for you. Devine Bioheat: the renewable energy solution that helps you make a difference – without breaking the bank. Save money and reduce foreign oil imports, all while using your existing heating system!
Don’t wait — here are some ways Devine Bioheat helps the environment.
How Devine Bioheat is Made
Devine Bioheat is made by blending biodiesel with conventional heating oil. Biodiesel is a natural solvent produced from any fat or oil, such as soybean oil, through a refinery process called transesterification, so Bioheat cleans as it moves through the heating system. No furnace or system modifications are required, and Devine Bioheat costs no more than your current oil.
The Positive Impact
Why was it brought to the market? The answer is simple. We found it is better for the environment. Biodiesel is the only alternative fuel to have fully completed the health effects testing requirements of the Clean Air Act. Tests showed that using Bioheat in a standard home oil burner resulted in a substantial reduction in unburned hydrocarbons, carbon monoxide, and particulate matter compared to emissions from distillate fuels. In addition, biodiesel’s exhaust emissions of sulfur oxides and sulfates (major components of acid rain) are eliminated.
Biodiesel is no longer just a feel-good boutique fuel for the few. There is a clear domestic agenda for most Americans, which says that we need to become less dependent on foreign oil imports and leave a smaller carbon footprint. Biodiesel helps meet these goals.
What is Compatible With Devine Bioheat?
Not sure if this fuel source is for you? Here are a few examples of what systems are compatible:
- All known oil tanks and systems are compatible with Bioheat at blends of 20% or less.
- For higher biodiesel blends, up to and including 100% biodiesel, compatibility will depend on the materials (metals, plastics, and rubber parts) in your tanks, pumps, and fuel lines.
- For blends higher than 20% biodiesel, only steel, mild steel, stainless steel, aluminum, fluorinated polyethylene, fluorinated polypropylene, and fiberglass vessels are recommended.
- Using tanks or lines made of brass, bronze, copper or lead, tin, and zinc (i.e., galvanized) may cause high sediment formation and filter clogging and is not recommended.
