Simply Green Biofuels and M.L. Halle Oil Service Inc. have partnered to bring the benefits of Bioheat to Manchester, N.H., nicknamed the Queen City.

M.L. Halle started delivering Simply Green Biofuel's B5 blend late last year, becoming the first exclusive partner for Simply Green in the state thus far.

Andrew Kellar, founder of Simply Green Biofuels, said, "Judging by the amount of inquiries that we have received, the Manchester area has been looking for a Bioheat supplier for some time, but we logistically haven't been able to accommodate them. Being able to partner with a company that is so in tune to its community's needs has expedited the process of bringing these fuels to Manchester."

Halle had its "Grand Green Opening" on Wednesday, Jan. 13th, to a crowd of 25 local dignitaries, fellow business owners and members of both the NH Oil Heat Council and the National Biodiesel Board. One of those in attendance was Lou Nazzaro, operations manager for advanced fuel solutions, which acts as the petroleum liaison to the NBB.

"The partnership between Simply Green and M.L. Halle sends a message to the community that the future of heating oil-Bioheat-is in their backyard," Nazzaro said. "When two leaders in their respective market come together for a win-win relationship, it's great news for the markets that they serve. "

Halle's commitment to going green has also led it to run its entire fleet on biodiesel, which will reduce the company's carbon dioxide emissions by almost 4 percent, nearly 9,000 pounds. Halle also sends all of its newsletters, invoices and statements electronically, which has reduced its waste stream.

Simply Green's biodiesel is made from waste vegetable oil. Blends are available from 5 percent up. No system modifications are needed to run up to a B20 blend.
