Bio fuel

All over the world our burners are well known for its reliability,
efficiency and performance

Bentone Bio fuel

Unlike other renewable energy sources, biomass can be converted directly into liquid fuels, called “biofuels,” these fuels are aimed for the heating of residential homes but will also work as a substitute for the transportation sector. The two most common types of biofuels in use today are ethanol and biodiesel, both of which represent the first generation of Biomass-based biodiesel fuels.

RME or Rapeseed Oil Methyl Esters or FAME (Fatty Acid Methyl Esters) is the most common biofuel in Europe and it is forecasted that the scale of production and consumption of this fuel will continue to increase as a result of the growing demand for diesel fuels. Currently, FAME is added to regular diesel fuels in the amount of up to 10 %.
Bentone was a pioneer especially in Northern Europe where we introduced RME burners to the market already in the early 2100 st century. RME is widely used in the Nordic countries for the heating of residential homes but also as truck diesel where it replaces older types of fuel.

Hydrotreated vegetable oils (HVO) do not have the detrimental eff ects of ester type biodiesel fuels,  like increased NOx emission, deposit formation, storage stability problems, more rapid aging of engine  paraffi  nic hydrocarbons that are free of aromatics, oxygen and sulfur and have high cetane numbers.

HVO has been used as a substitue fuel in the Nordic countries for several years and Bentone quickly saw the advantages with less consumption of fuel and lower NOx levels. For years we have perfected and tested our range of burners to handle these new Biofuels and we can proudly say that our range of burners are from now on fossil free.
