In today’s world, energy efficiency and sustainability are more important than ever. As a fuel provider in Vermont for the last 75 years we’ve seen the changes taking place and in the mid 1990s we started working to reduce our impact and help our customers make better choices by offering sustainable solutions and reducing their fuel consumption. That’s where biofuel and specifically B99 home heating comes into play.
What is B99?
Biofuel is a liquid fuel that is produced from renewable resources. It can be blended with conventional oil in any percentage. Learn more about biofuel over on our Biofuel page. The biofuel blend is named for the percentage of Bio in it. So B99 is 99% renewable biofuel with just a splash of conventional oil added to it. It’s the highest blend of biofuel available to the general market and Bourne’s Energy has been offering it to Vermonters for many years.
B99 is a renewable and clean-burning alternative to traditional heating fuels like oil or natural gas. It is derived from renewable resources such as soybean oil, animal fats, and even recycled cooking oil. In fact, the B99 that Bourne’s Energy sells is made from recycled cooking oils collected from around New England! B99 is considered a sustainable fuel because it significantly reduces greenhouse gas emissions and reliance on fossil fuels.
Benefits of B99 Home Heating
One of the primary advantages of using B99 for home heating is its environmental friendliness. B99 is a low-carbon fuel that releases fewer harmful emissions, such as carbon dioxide and sulfur, into the atmosphere compared to traditional heating fuels. By switching to B99, you can reduce your carbon footprint and contribute to a cleaner and healthier planet.
High Energy Efficiency
Compatibility with Existing Systems
B99 is produced from renewable resources, making it a sustainable long-term solution for home heating. As long as we have restaurants using cooking oil, we can continue to produce B99 and reduce our reliance on finite fossil fuels.
