When it comes to sustainability in home and commercial heating, the combustion industry is currently researching and developing several different types of environmentally-friendly energy solutions. One factor that sets many of these energy and fuel options apart from the rest is implementation. However simple or complex (as well as how expensive or time-consuming) they might be to implement across communities and the country as a whole must be considered. The relative investment that implementation might require is based on several criteria, including equipment and infrastructure needs.
Green fuels - products that will address manmade global warming. While green fuels, including biodiesel and renewable diesel, are almost certainly more environmentally friendly than more traditional heating fuels, it's still somewhat unclear and difficult to predict exactly how much environmental impact green fuels may have today and in the future. Perhaps the most accurate way to quantify the sustainability of biodiesel and renewable diesel is in comparison to the sources and environmental footprint of carbon-based fuels.
In comparison to heating fuels such as oil, gas, and electricity, what gives green fuels the opportunity to be much more sustainable heating options? In this post, we'll discuss the main characteristics that make today's green fuels sustainable compared to traditional heating methods as well as the impact these fuels are already having in certain regions of the US.
As green fuel options continue to enter the heating and combustion industry, it's incredibly important for manufacturers, technicians, and consumers alike to to educate themselves about these cleaner and more sustainable fuel options and the opportunities they present. For anyone that's doing their research into green fuels, understanding the processes used to produce both biodiesel and renewable diesel are a huge piece of the puzzle. These processes actually impact the sustainability of the fuels they produce in several significant ways. In this post, we'll discuss the different green fuel production processes and how they affect the green potential of both biodiesel and renewable diesel as heating fuels.
The need and desire for cleaner, greener heating solutions is greater today than it's ever been before. With concerns about global warming and the impact of the heating industry on the ride, consumers and commercial representatives alike are in need of new alternatives that are more environmentally conscious. Luckily, there is a solution on the horizon of the heating market in the form of two innovative new fuels: biodiesel and renewable diesel. These fuels, when used in heating applications, are formulated to be friendlier to the environment than traditional fuel types.
