“Going Green” usually refers to a heightened awareness of using the Earth’s resources more efficiently. The term today includes efforts to conserve our natural resources, reduce our contributions to landfills, and reduce pollution generally. Going green, then, can be summarized by the mantra “reduce, reuse, recycle”–which means reduce waste, reuse what you can, and recycle what you can’t.”

“Going Green” – What the Future Holds For Niccoli Bros. Oil
Beginning July of 2010, Massachusetts has mandated a 2% biofuel blend for home heating oil, commonly known as Bioheat. Bioheat is a blend of traditional home heating oil and pure biodiesel.
What is Biodiesel? Biodiesel is NOT a petroleum product. Rather, it is a refined fuel produced from domestic, renewable resources like soybean, cotton seed, sunflower seed and recycled cooking oil. It contains no petroleum! It is biodegradable, non-toxic and essentially free of sulfur and aromatics.
In short, Bioheat is a much cleaner fuel, and more importantly, renewable.
Niccoli Bros. Oil is on board with Bioheat and we are looking forward to offering Bioheat to our customers very soon! It is the intelligent fuel and the future of home heating oil.
