NORTH CONWAY, N.H. (AP) - A New Hampshire hospital is converting its heating system from petroleum fuels to biofuels and is believed to be the first hospital in the country to use the fuel.

Memorial Hospital in North Conway has partnered with Ottawa-based Ensyn Fuels, which produces renewable fuels and chemicals from forest residues.

The hospital says the change will allow it to convert its entire heating requirements, reducing its greenhouse gases from heating fuels by about 85 percent and total emissions by about 75 percent. It estimates a heating cost reduction of over 30 percent.

The hospital is marking the occasion with a presentation on Wednesday.
