Myth: No Objective Biodiesel or Bioheat® Fuel Standard Exists.

Fact: Bioheat® a minimum 2% to a maximum 5% biodiesel (ASTM 06751)blended with heating oil (ASTM0396). ASTM began work on biodiesel standards in 1993 and approved a stringent standard for B100 biodiesel in 2001. Biodiesel is currently the ONLY non-petroleum based diesel fuel to have an approved ASTM standard. ASTM also formally approved up to 5% biodiesel as a fungible component in heating oil (ASTM 0396) in 2008. B5 Biohea1®and lower meets the same exact specifications as current petroleum based heating oil.
