The article reports that Brookhaven National Laboratory (BNL) and Futon Heating Solutions' biodiesel fueled hydronic condensing boiler (B100) passed the New York State Energy Research and Development Authority's (NYSERDA) laboratory testing. It states that the project proves that B100 can replace fossil fuel or natural gas. The boiler achieves greater than 94% thermal efficiency and reduces nitrogen oxide (NOx), sulfur-dioxide (SO2), and carbon dioxide (CO2) emission.
