Waste Oil Regulations and Standards
The EPA has approved the use of used oil heaters for businesses under its Used Oil Regulations. Enacted by the EPA, the Resource Conservation and Recovery Act, CFR Title 40, defines used oil and the explicit guidelines that must be followed in order to safely burn used oil for energy. In Regulation 279, CFR Title 40, EPA provides guidelines for the equipment that can be used for burning used oil. Each state has its own Used Oil Regulations and should be considered when purchasing a used oil heating system. Most have rules very similar to the Federal rules with some small variations. They are not allowed in California.
At EnergyLogic, we adhere to the strictest safety standards. Our products are UL-listed for commercial applications in the US and Canada. We have also received the CE mark, certifying that our waste oil heaters and boilers have met European Directives regarding consumer safety, health or environmental requirements.
They are not designed for residential applications and should not be installed in any residential environments. Proper installation and maintenance are required to meet NFPA and CSA codes and standards.
We, along with our dealers, are experts on local codes and regulations. Give us a call to discuss the specifics in your area, (800) 335-3092.
