Simply Green Biofuels
Simply Green is an environmental leader bringing green energy to the seacoast of New Hampshire and southern Maine. Launched in a Stratham, NH, farmhouse in 2007, Simply Green has grown to become an iconic company of local green progress, offering Bioheat for heat and hot water and Biodiesel for commercial trucks – such as the fleets run by Oakhurst Dairy and PSNH. Unlike many fuel companies offering Bioheat, Simply Green mixes their Bioheat on-site using B100 made from 100% recycled waste vegetable-based cooking oil. Not only that, but their B100 comes from two regional refineries: White Mountain Biodiesel of North Haverhill, NH, and Maine Standard Biofuels of Portland, ME. And Simply Green’s Bioheat is no more expensive than comparable #2 fuel oil sold by competitors.
Bioheat and Biodiesel are the clean alternatives to conventional #2 fuel oil and petroleum-based diesel fuel. They help to reduce CO2 emissions by a minimum of 15% and particulate pollutants by 20%. Greenhouse gas emissions for B100 can be up to 52% lower than those of petro-diesel.
B100 is biodegradable and non-toxic. Blends of up to B20 (20% biofuel to 80% #2 fuel oil) can be used without modifications to oil-burning heat and hot-water systems, and diesel engines. Simply Green’s mission is to foster awareness and educate the people of New Hampshire and Maine about all the alternative energy choices available. After eight years and millions of gallons, the family-owned and operated company with deep ties in the community remains a leader in reducing our dependence on foreign oil with a cleaner local recycled alternative.
