Much has changed since the first Earth Day in 1970. The activism that came from that led to positive changes like the Clean Air Act and Clean Water Act.
While our environment has improved substantially in some ways over these last 52 years, several challenges remain. Our oceans are filling up with trash, with two enormous garbage islands twice the size of Texas in the Pacific Ocean. Soil erosion and the loss of trees that convert carbon dioxide to oxygen occur as a result of deforestation all around the world.
The threat of climate change-related damage continues to grow. Antarctica recently had a heatwave that sent temperatures soaring 70 degrees above normal. The Conger Ice Shelf, approximately the size of New York City, collapsed off Antarctica into the South Ocean in March.
Heating oil is one of the industries that continues to work towards reducing its environmental effect. And, because of this effort, Vaughn Oil delivers only Bioheat® fuel, a home heating oil that you’ll be proud to use!
Heating oil isn’t what it was a few decades ago. Bioheat fuel is a combination of ultra-low-sulfur heating oil and renewable biodiesels, making it a much more environmentally friendly option than the heating oil of old.
The biodiesels in Vaughn Oil’s Bioheat fuel are made with renewable resources including:
Our Bioheat fuel is beneficial to the environment in several ways. A major environmental benefit is reduced greenhouse gas emissions. When you use Bioheat fuel to heat your home, you’ll produce significantly fewer greenhouse gases without giving up a smidge of comfort!
Because it burns cleaner and leaves fewer deposits on the heat registers, Bioheat fuel is much easier on your home’s furnace or boiler. That not only means fewer breakdowns and repairs, but your heating system will also last far longer, meaning less waste in landfills.
