Biofuel Home Heating

great article about using biodiesel blends in heating systems that use heating oil. one of the reasons for not using 100 percent biodiesel is that traditional burners have pipe seals made from natural rubber, which biodiesel degrades. so, the real challgence is transitioning to a new generation of heater that doesn't have this problem, and voila -- 100% biodiesel heating oil would be a reality.

it's more expensive than traditional heating oil right now, but that's because economies of scale haven't had a chance to play a role in this market.
