North Carolina Oilheat is Renewable.

North Carolina Oilheat is growing greener every year thanks to innovations like ultra-low sulfur heating oil (ULSHO) and Bioheat® fuel. These environmentally friendly heating oil blends produce near-zero emissions, contain renewable resources such as soybean oil, and can be used by any Oilheat system without making modifications to your burner or your tank. Here are some other helpful facts about ULSHO and Bioheat® fuel.


Ultra-low sulfur heating oil lowers maintenance, improves efficiency and reduces pollution from heating systems.

Bioheat® fuel blends up to B20 (20 percent biodiesel) can be used with existing Oilheat systems to achieve performance equivalent to, if not better than, conventional heating oil.

Bioheat® fuel supports North Carolina’s farmers, reduces our state’s dependence on foreign oil, and promotes North Carolina energy independence.


Many North Carolina Oilheat Dealers sell renewable blends of low-sulfur heating oil, ultra-low sulfur heating oil and/or Bioheat® fuel. To heat your home using one of these renewable fuels, find an NC Oilheat dealer near you.
