Bioheat® is really starting to heat up as a growing market for biodiesel. The Northeast’s heating oil industry has rebranded itself as the “renewable liquid heating fuels industry,” and has resolved to achieve net-zero carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions by 2050.
This year’s Biodiesel Industry Partnership Award is dedicated to heating oil heavy hitters including the National Oilheat Research Alliance, New England Fuel Institute, Massachusetts Energy Marketers Association, Energy Marketers Association of Rhode Island, The New York State Energy Coalition, Connecticut Energy Marketers Association, Fuel Merchants Association of New Jersey, Empire State Energy Association, Vermont Fuel Dealers Association, Westmore Fuel Co., Inc., and Maine Marketers Association. Representatives from all 11 organizations were on hand to accept their awards, right after wrapping up a panel on the hot topic of bioheat.
Paul Nazzaro with Advanced Fuel Solutions moderated the panel with John Huber, National Oilheat Research Alliance; Sean Cota, New England Fuel Institute; Charles Uglietto, National Oilheat Research Alliance/Cubby Oil & Energy; Michael Ferrante, Massachusetts Energy Marketers Association.
