Wednesday, 28 September 2022 16:30

Winter in Colorado and Wyoming is often frigid and long, and heating bills for your business can rise during the cold winter months. Investing in a Clean Burn waste oil heater can heavily offset those heating costs for your business while proving to be a more environmentally friendly way of disposing of your waste oil byproducts. Let’s dive into the benefits of a waste oil heater and why you need one this winter.

4 Reasons to Upgrade to a Clean Burn Waste Oil Heater

Financial Benefits

Burning waste oil to generate heat is one of the most cost-effective ways to reduce your company’s energy consumption and heating bills. In fact, a Clean Burn waste oil furnace can lower your annual fuel costs by up to 80%. And it does so without the hassle of transporting hazardous materials or disposing of used oil off-site.

In fact, a study conducted by the Environmental Protection Agency found that businesses that use a waste oil furnace are responsible for saving over $1 billion per year on their natural gas bill. These savings translate into about $12,000 saved annually on heating costs for those families.

Environmental Benefit

Burning waste oil eliminates the need to transport it away from where it is generated. This decreases the risk of a leak or spill and reduces the demand for energy used to move the oil. Burning your own oil for heat also reduces the strain placed on the Earth's natural resource base.

The environmental benefits of using waste oil for heat are significant. For example, a 2016 study found that switching to biodiesel fuel can help reduce greenhouse gas emissions by up to 10% for individual businesses compared to conventional diesel fuel. And a 2017 study concluded that even though biodiesel does emit some pollutants into the air, those are far less harmful than traditional fossil fuels.

Cradle to Grave Liability

The Environmental Protection Agency estimates there are over 2 million tons of used motor oils produced annually in the United States alone. While many companies take steps to ensure their waste oil doesn’t contaminate water, chemicals, or other contaminants, some don't.

In fact, according to the EPA, about one out of every five gallons of used motor oil ends up being spilled or leaked into the environment each year. What happens after a spill? Well, that depends on where that spill occurs. For example, if you dump waste oil down the drain, then you could potentially face fines because you didn't properly dispose of that waste oil.

So, how does this affect you? You might think that you'd never be held liable for something like this. However, you could actually be held liable for anything that happens during the entire life cycle of your waste oil. That includes when it's manufactured, transported, stored, processed, reused, recycled, disposed of, etc.
