The Hero BX
In 2008, HERO BX Erie, and in 2017, HERO BX Alabama, achieved BQ-9000 accreditation from the National Biodiesel Accreditation Commission after passing a rigorous review and inspection of its quality control process. HERO BX boasts state of the art, on-site laboratories to ensure adherence to the strict biodiesel specification of ASTM D6751.
In early 2017, HERO BX took its commitment to quality one step further in announcing a partnership in the Bioheat® program. The HERO BX Branded Bioheat® Program offers heating oil retailers the opportunity to carry the HERO BX brand and supporting technical and marketing benefits in exchange for Bioheat® supply. The first dealer signed to the program was Dover, New Hampshire, headquartered D. F. Richard Energy and to jumpstart the program, HERO BX leased a 5,000 barrel storage facility in North Hampton, New Hampshire. HERO BX invested in the infrastructure that allows for biodiesel/heating oil rack blends from B2 through B80, allowing branded retails dealers an automated solution for Bioheat® supply and distribution.
“This is forward thinking at its best and many future generations will benefit from this partnership.”
