Vermont Oilheat Companies Only Deliver Ultra-Low Sulfur Heating Oil (ULSHO)

Vermont law requires all heating oil and kerosene to have less than 15 ppm sulfur.


ULSHO has fewer particulate emissions, including sulfur dioxide and nitrogen oxide. SO2, NOX, and particulate emissions from ULSHO are the equivalent of natural gas, according to research conducted at Brookhaven National Laboratory.


Heating clean saves money.  Boilers and furnaces operate more efficiently when using ULSHO. This clean fuel can be blended with renewable biodiesel and used with existing equipment and fuel storage tanks.


More than half of Vermont homes and businesses choose oilheat to keep them safe and warm. Vermont’s new clean fuel standards will help save money and the environment.
