A Sweet 16 for Green Bio20
In October 2016, Mayor de Blasio signed legislation requiring that all heating oil sold in New York City be B5 Bioheat® fuel containing a minimum 5% biodiesel. That’s a big step for the City, and we applaud our neighbors’ efforts to help protect the environment. In fact, we’ve been selling Bio20 — a cleaner, greener blend containing 20% biodiesel — since back in November 2002…
That’s right! November 2018 marks 16 years since Schildwachter began blending, storing and selling biodiesel. We blend with ultra-low sulfur heating oil and ultra-low sulfur diesel, so both your heating system and our delivery trucks run on a cleaner, more environmentally secure fuel.
What are some other benefits of Bio20?
- Prolongs equipment life for your heating system: Bio20 lubricates and runs cleaner, so your system operates more efficiently.
- Supports America: Bio20 reduces our dependence on expensive foreign oil and supports American farmers who grow the soybeans used for biodiesel production.
- TAX CREDITS: Best of all, because Bio20 contains 20% biodiesel, you earn a $.20 tax credit for every gallon you purchase in a calendar year! In other words, if you buy 500 gallons from Schildwachter between January 2018 and December 2018, you can get $100 back in April 2019.
Because the tax credit is only available for B6 and higher blends, not every New Yorker can take advantage of it — but all Schildwachter customers can! Just one more reason Schildwachter is the smartest, surest choice for your home heating.
