HVO Fuel Transition

Many large-scale consumers of RED diesel are already improving their Carbon footprints by switching to alternative fuels, and most engine manufacturers have now confirmed EN15940 compatibility utilising a synthetic biodiesel called HVO.

Hydrotreated Vegetable Oil (HVO)

HVO fuel is a form of renewable diesel that has been produced from renewable and sustainably sourced vegetable fats and oils.

Hydrotreating vegetable oils is a modern way to produce high-quality diesel fuels from completely renewable materials which can be regrown when stock is needed. The crops that are used to produce HVO fuel minimise damage to the environment, the natural ecosystem, and the drive for global deforestation.

HVO fuel offers the best overall coverage between environmental, operational and performance parameters.

Why switch to HVO?

‘Green diesels’ create fewer emissions than regular fuel. Experts calculate that a 1,000 litres of HVO releases 195kg of C02, compared to 3600kg for the same amount of regular diesel.
