What are the benefits of HVO fuel for us and our environment?

Improving the air quality – Hydrotreated vegetable oil reduces greenhouse gas emissions by up to 90%, nitrogen oxide (NOx) by 30%. This significantly reduces particulate matter (PM) and carbon monoxide (CO) emissions, making it a safer fuel.

Zero FAME – Although this green fuel can still be contaminated with small particles, it can resist the attack of diesel bugs and water contamination. It does not absorb moisture, reducing water content and the chance of it forming nasty sludge.

Excellent cold weather properties – This renewable diesel solution has low cloud point (-32°C), providing better starting performance, clean combustion, and less chance of waxing in extremely cold weather.

Higher cetane number (up to 90) – This makes HVO extremely efficient fuel. The higher the cetane number, the faster it ignites, resulting in improved engine performance. Also reduces Greenhouse Gas (GHG) emissions.

Extended storage life – As this paraffinic fuel is FAME and sulphur-free, meaning it doesn’t suffer from water contamination issues traditional diesel faces. You can store HVO for up to 10 years, ensuring you have good storage.

Easy to use – HVO fuel has a high flashpoint, improving safety during storage and handling. As a fully compatible HVO, you can use it in all diesel engines and equipment. It can be mixed with diesel fuel, but this decreases its performance capabilities.

Meets EN 15940:2016 specifications – As hydrotreated vegetable oil is 100% bio and 100% hydrocarbon, it meets the increasing bio legislations. HVO has received a wide range of approvals from OEMs such as: DAF, Scania, Volvo, MAN, Mercedes-Benz, Renault, Iveco, John Deere, Agco, Caterpillar, Steryr, FPT and JCB.
