Ohio Oilheat Is Clean
Oilheat burns cleanly. Today’s Oilheat burns 95 percent cleaner than the Oilheat of 1970 did. As a result, Oilheat falls well within the air pollution standards set by the Environmental Protection Agency.
Additionally, low-sulfur products and renewable biofuels, such as the Bioheat® fuel made from Ohio soybean oil, reduce Oilheat’s already near-zero emissions even further.
Low-sulfur heating oil reduces the sulfur content of Oilheat to 500 parts per million, eliminating 75-80 percent of the fuel’s sulfur dioxide emissions.
Ultra-low sulfur heating oil (ULSHO) contains just 15 sulfur parts per million (ppm), which lowers sulfur dioxide emissions so much that they become immeasurable.
B20 Bioheat® fuel reduces nitrogen oxide emissions by about 20 percent and carbon dioxide emissions by another 20 percent, according to the National Oilheat Research Alliance.
Oilheat storage tanks pose no public health risk or environmental danger to Ohio, because Oilheat is non-toxic, non-carcinogenic and biodegradable.
