REG partner to provide Boston public buildings with B20 Bioheat®

December 18, 2019 |

In Massachusetts, family owned, veteran operated fuel company Broco Oil has been contracted to provide heating oil for use in Boston’s city-owned buildings, including firehouses, police stations and other municipal facilities.

Broco Oil’s ’s heating oil is a B20 Bioheat® fuel blend containing 20 percent biodiesel, a renewable liquid fuel that significantly reduces greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions compared with petroleum-based diesel fuel and heating oil. Through a partnership announced in May 2019, Broco Oil purchases its biodiesel from Renewable Energy Group (REG). The fuel is transported via rail from REG’s Midwest production facilities to Broco’s rail-connected bulk plant in Haverhill, Massachusetts, where it is stored, blended on demand and sold to commercial customers. Broco Oil also has its own fleet of trucks that deliver blended B20 Bioheat fuel for residential and commercial use.

Under the terms of Broco Oil’s contract with the City of Boston, the company will deliver heating oil to sites maintained and operated by the following city departments: Fire, Parks and Recreation, Police, Property Management, Public Schools, Public Works and Transportation. Broco Oil has been contracted for one year, beginning November 1, 2019. The company completed its first contracted delivery on November 6, 2019, for the Public Works Department’s Andrew McArdle Bridge House in East Boston.
