Tests Confirm Value Of Biofuel Blend
According to MOC, the lab trials demonstrated that, relative to conventional heating oil, incorporating a biofuel component into the fuel reduced sulfur oxide emissions by 83 percent and nitrogen oxide emissions by 20 percent.
Initiated by MOC, the biofuel testing was a collaborative effort between MOC and NORA, the New England Fuel Institute (NEFI), and Advanced Fuel Solutions Inc.
Testing also found that using a 20 percent biodiesel fuel blend can lower carbon dioxide emissions by 20 percent.
