B20 biofuel boiler

July 18, 2023

Paving the way for a more climate conscious future, hydronic comfort heating solutions leader Weil-McLain® has announced that its Ultra Oil, WGO, WTGO and SGO residential oil boilers are now certified for use with biofuel blends up to 20% (B20).

Using B20 with a certified oil boiler can help reduce greenhouse gas emissions because biodiesel is a cleaner-burning fuel than petroleum diesel and can provide similar performance while significantly limiting how much carbon dioxide is released into the air. Other benefits of using a B20 certified boiler include:  

  • Renewable energy source: Biodiesel is made from renewable sources, meaning it can be continually produced by a steady supply of raw materials. By utilizing biodiesel in a B20 blend, the dependence on finite fossil fuel resources can be reduced. 
  • Energy security: Incorporating biodiesel into a fuel mix diversifies energy sources and reduces dependence on foreign oils and petroleum. This can contribute to enhancing energy security and reducing vulnerability to supply disruptions.
  • Government incentives: In some regions, there may be government incentives, grants or tax credits available for using biodiesel.
