I saw this article today in the news and thought it was a good reminder that biodiesel isn't used just for as a transportation fuel but also for home heating.
More and more cars on the road are sporting “biodiesel” bumper stickers, touting the “green” sensibilities of their owners. But these days even some houses qualify for that eco-friendly label.
That’s because biodiesel — a mixture of diesel and fuel made of vegetable material such as soy or grass — is gaining cachet not only among homeowners who still use their old-style oil furnaces but also among some who choose the option when shopping for a new heating system.
For a list of companies offering home heating oil blended with biodiesel (also know as Bioheat).
