NORTH HAVEN, CT February 16, 2021 – Carlin has announced that all of their Residential Oil Burners manufactured after 2/16/2021 are UL Listed for Bio Fuel blends up to 20% (B20). This marks the next step in the industry’s ongoing commitment to a reduced carbon environment.
Legislation calling for aggressive reductions in carbon emissions has been adopted throughout states in the northeast. The Oil Heat Industry has committed to meet this challenge by unanimously ratifying a resolution put forth by The National Energy & Fuels Institute (NEFI) calling for a 15% reduction in carbon emissions by 2023, followed by a 40% reduction by 2030 and Net Zero emissions by 2050.
Bio Fuel blends with increased levels of bio content meet these challenges and create a path forward for the industry. B20 Bio fuel, for which the Carlin burner is now approved, meets the first target of a 15% carbon reduction.
C. Cowles President, Richard Lyons states, “Many dealers have used B20 blends for years and more are looking to adopt it soon. For years, Carlin has supported these early adopters and worked with industry allies to advance this effort, ultimately leading to the creation of a UL standard for B20 burners”.
Carlin Combustion is confident that their UL listed B20 burners (which will be identifiable by new burner chassis and carton labeling) will deliver the same performance and satisfaction contractors and fuel dealers have come to expect from them.
Carlin is committed to supporting the industry both today and in the future as the industry moves to meet environmental challenges while continuing to provide consumers with safe, economical, and comfortable heating for their homes.
