HERO BX to host Open House/Appreciation Day
HERO BX and D.F. Richard Energy to unveil newly branded fleet of trucks

North Hampton, NH – Lake Erie Biofuels, dba HERO BX, will celebrate one year of business at their blending terminal in North Hampton by hosting an open house and appreciation event on Thursday, November 2, 2017 from 9am to 2pm. HERO BX has invited customers and community members to share in the celebration.

In late 2016, HERO BX first launched the HERO BX Branded Bioheat ® Program to meet a demand in the seacoast residential and commercial heating oil markets. The HERO BX North Hampton blending and distribution terminal is the first of its kind in the region, enabling fuel oil dealers to procure biodiesel efficiently through customized blends from B2 to B80.  The process was streamlined for the fuel oil dealer to be as easy as driving in, carding on and choosing to bottom or top load their truck, driving away with a blend that is accurate and reliable every time.  HERO BX Branded Bioheat® customers now have the benefit of an industry-leading product every time.

Biodiesel is a clean burning fuel produced from domestic, renewable resources such as vegetable oils or animal fats; biodiesel acts as a drop in replacement for petro-diesel that can be used with no modifications to existing engines or heating systems.  Bioheat ® is a blend of biodiesel and low sulfur diesel heating oil, offering a smarter solution that results in cleaner burning fuel to heat homes.

Also as part of the day’s events, HERO BX and D. F. Richard Energy (DFRE) will unveil three newly-branded trucks under the National Biodiesel Board Vehicle Wrap Grant Program.  As a member of the National Biodiesel Board, HERO BX sponsored DFRE for the program which was designed to match up to $10,000 of vehicle wraps or decals showcasing America’s Advanced Biofuel and DFRE was chosen as a winner.

This short ceremony will take place promptly at 11am and will feature the following speakers:

  • Tim Keaveney, Vice President of Sales, HERO BX
  • Samuel P. “Pat” Black, III, founder and CEO, HERO BX
  • Rick Card, CEO, D.F. Richard Energy
  • Kaleb Little, Senior Communications Manager, National Biodiesel Board

A ribbon cutting will commence immediately following the last speaker.

Media is invited to attend and final release will be sent following the day-long event with photographs included.

HERO BX produces and delivers biodiesel, a cleaner burning renewable drop-in replacement for petroleum and heating oil applications. These products reduce carbon emissions, create jobs in the United States, promote energy security and serve the community.
