Bioheat is a Cleaner Option that Reduces Pollution

Since 2001, Genesee Energy has provided customers across the Puget Sound with Bioheat, a blend of traditional fuel and safe, clean, renewable biodiesel, that reduces pollution and improves local air quality making communities healthier places to live. Bioheat is a renewable, low carbon alternative available today made from natural oils such as recycled restaurant oils, excess animal fats, and vegetable oils. Bioheat can be used in existing oil tanks and furnaces without any modifications, and is a more affordable alternative to the significant cost of converting your heat system. It is a better fuel for the health of your community, the environment, and your home.
