Fossil-free building heat on construction sites

Fossil oil is an energy source used for heating on construction sites. It is a form of crude oil that has been formed through decay and transformation of dead animals and plants over long periods of time and under high pressure and temperatures. Fossil oil can be used to produce fuel oil, natural gas, and other fossil fuels used for heating.

Fuel oil is the most common form of fossil oil used for heating on construction sites. It is a vaporized form of oil that is burned to produce heat. It is a very rich energy source, but it is also one of the most harmful to the environment, as it releases large amounts of carbon dioxide and other greenhouse gases during combustion.

Natural gas is another form of fossil oil used for heating on construction sites. It is a vaporized form of oil consisting of a mixture of hydrocarbons such as methane and propane. It is a very energy-rich source, but it is also a potentially dangerous source as it is explosive and can cause harm if mishandled.

As you can see, fossil oil is a common energy source for heating on construction sites, but it is also a source that has significant negative impacts on the environment and can be dangerous to use.


Prohibition of oil on construction sites from January 1, 2022

From January 1, 2022, it is prohibited to use fossil oil for drying and heating on construction sites.

In the assessments that have been made, it is estimated that the prohibition could reduce greenhouse gas emissions by about 85,000 tons of CO2 per year up to 2030. This corresponds to emissions from about 42,500 fossil cars annually.

Before the prohibition came into effect, it was common to use fossil oil (mineral oil) for temporary heating and drying on construction sites, often in the form of heaters that burned diesel.


Fossil-free construction sites

Fossil-free building heat is a method of providing heat to buildings without using fossil fuels such as heating oil or natural gas. This means that the technologies and energy sources used to provide heat must be renewable and environmentally friendly.

One way to achieve fossil-free building heat is to use solar energy. Solar panels can be installed on the roof of a building to convert sunlight into electricity. This energy can be used to drive heat pumps and heat water, among other things. This is an environmentally friendly and cost-effective method, as solar energy is renewable and free to use.

Another method of providing fossil-free building heat is to use renewable biofuel. This can involve using wood or pellets made from trees, grass, or other biological material that is burned to create heat. This is also an environmentally friendly method, as the biological material can be recycled and used again, while the need for fossil fuel is reduced.

A third method for achieving fossil-free building heat is to use heat pumps. These devices use electrical energy to make air, water, or ground into heat, which can then be used to heat buildings. This is an environmentally friendly method because it does not use fossil fuel, and it can also be cost-effective because it can use renewable electricity.


Fossil-free building heat is important for reducing carbon dioxide emissions and other greenhouse gases that contribute to global warming.

By using renewable energy sources, you can reduce reliance on fossil fuels while contributing to a more sustainable future.

However, the implementation of fossil-free building heat can pose challenges. It may require investments in technology and equipment, as well as changes to buildings. The biggest challenge may be the cost of replacing all existing equipment with new fossil-free equipment.

We have expertise in this area and several years of experience with fossil-free solutions for both heating and drying. We have a large rental inventory and can help customize solutions that meet your needs.


Rent temporary fossil-free building heat

There are several benefits to renting fossil-free building heat. One of the biggest benefits is that it helps reduce carbon dioxide emissions and other greenhouse gases. By using renewable energy sources to provide heat, you can reduce reliance on fossil fuels and contribute to a sustainable future.

Another benefit of renting fossil-free building heat is that it can be cost-effective. Some renewable energy sources, such as solar energy and biofuel, are free to use and can help reduce heating costs. Heat pumps can also be cost-effective because they can use renewable electricity to produce heat.

Another reason to rent fossil-free building heat is that it can be easy and convenient. We deliver and install the equipment and handle all maintenance. This makes it easy for building owners to use the technology without worrying about the details.
