What is Renewable Fuel Oil?

Renewable fuel oil (RFO) is a renewably-sourced alternative to conventional fuel oil that can be utilized in central heating plants. Typically produced from regionally-sourced waste wood products using specialized thermal processes, RFO can be utilized in existing heating systems by customers seeking to reduce their carbon footprint.

Why RFO for Colleges and Universities?

As institutions strive to reduce their carbon footprint, facility heating demands continue to be a significant obstacle towards achieving desired reductions. RFO offers a sustainable solution to significantly reduce an institutions’ carbon footprint by utilizing virtually carbon-neutral renewable sources. Appreciable payback periods and financial incentives both in place and on the horizon offer strong economic considerations, and locally-sourced feedstocks provide added economic benefits to various industries across the region. Institutions and other large facilities have been able to utilize renewable fuel oil to reduce their greenhouse gas emissions and improve their bottom line.
