Historically, the heating and combustion industry has had a significant impact on our environment, through both fuel production and emission. However, as the demand for cleaner fuel alternatives has continued to increase, new heating alternative have begun to emerge in the form of green heating fuels. Namely, renewable diesel and biodiesel have developed in order to act as substitutes for traditional petroleum-based heating fuels. These fuels bring both benefits and challenges to the industry. In this post, we'll provide an introduction to renewable green fuels and how their development is impacting the heating industry.
While oil heat is one of the most common types of heating systems across the country today, many consumers still hold some popular misconceptions about the use of heating oil. In our oil heat misconceptions blog series, we'd like to take the time to address these widespread misunderstandings about fuel oil and its use in residential and commercial heating.
At this time, the heating and combustion industry is putting the pieces in place for one of the biggest steps toward carbon neutrality in history: the large-scale implementation of green, bio-based fuels, including renewable diesel and FAME biofuels (biodiesel). As biofuel research and trials continue to show evidence of the green segment's opportunity to slash greenhouse gas emissions in both the transportation and heating markets, fuel companies and distributors have a lot to consider when it comes to the logistics and distribution of these innovative green biofuels.
In this post, we'll discuss the potential implications to the heating industry when it comes to the logistics and implementation of green biofuels and what considerations fuel marketers will need to make based on the characteristics of the different types of biofuel.
