Petroleum Tanks - Biofuel
Biofuel is a type of combustible liquid derived from biological sources, such as plants, animals, or microorganisms. Biofuels are renewable and can be used to replace or supplement traditional fossil fuels, such as gasoline, diesel and heating oil. Common types of biofuels include biodiesel, ethanol, and biogas. Biofuels are produced through a variety of processes, including fermentation, pyrolysis, and gasification.
The most common type of renewable fuel compatible with residential heating tanks is biodiesel. Biodiesel is a renewable combustible liquid made from vegetable oils, animal fats, or recycled cooking grease. It is a clean burning combustible that can be used in any diesel engine or oil-fired burner with little or no modifications.
Biofuel is increasingly being used for heating buildings in Canada. In fact, the Canadian government has set a target of having 5% of all energy used for heating come from renewable sources by 2030. This includes biofuel, which is a renewable energy source.
Biofuel has many advantages when it comes to heating products. Biofuel is a renewable energy source, meaning it can be replenished quickly and is not a finite resource like fossil fuels. It is also a clean burning fuel, meaning it produces less emissions than traditional fossil fuels. Finally, biofuel is a versatile combustible, meaning it can be used in a variety of heating products.
