John Maniscalco, New York Oil Heating Association. New York City has become a shining example of biodiesel support as sustainability efforts continue to move forward,” said the National Biodiesel Board in awarding him their 2013 “Eye on Biodiesel Award” in the Partnership category.
New York City recently passed landmark legislation: starting October 2012 all heating oil sold in the city must contain at least two percent biodiesel. This cleaner burning, domestic fuel blend known as Bioheat® will replace up to 20 million gallons of petroleum a year. NBB said the efforts of Maniscalco and the support provided by the New York Oil Heating Association made this legislation possible.
