Have you Heard about HVO Green D+ Fuel?

HVO Green D+ is a sustainable diesel fuel. It’s fossil-free and is made from 100% renewable raw materials such as fat, waste vegetables and other oils. The fats are transformed into biofuel using an innovative, environmentally-friendly hydrogenation process. HVO Green D+ is suitable for use in all diesel engines and industrial powered generators.

HVO is a second-generation drop-in alternative to mineral diesel. That means that you don’t have to modify your existing equipment to use it. You can even top up a tank already containing mineral diesel with HVO as the two liquids mix together.

It meets EN 15940 standards and Fuel Quality Directive 2009/30/EC Annex II.

What Does Second-Generation Mean?

First-generation biofuels were more at risk from problems caused by cold weather, cold filter plugging, water damage and diesel bug attack. These are all problems that cause fuel contamination and tank corrosion.

HVO has been developed to eliminate these issues. It also produces less harmful emissions than first-generation biofuels.

Why is HVO Green D+ a Good Choice for the Planet?

To give you an idea of the positive environmental impact you can make by switching to HVO Green D+: Apparently, Sir Robert McAlpine saved an estimated 70 tonnes of carbon, roughly the equivalent of the carbon generated by 14 personal flights from the United Kingdom to Australia, by using 25000 litres of HVO on a single project in London.

Global warming is everyone’s problem. It’s important we make the changes we can now to reduce further damage caused by our fuel emissions. The UK has a net zero target for greenhouse gas emissions by 2050. Using HVO is one of the ways we can help achieve this, as the lack of fossil carbon in the fuel results in a massive 90% reduction in greenhouse gas emissions.

Why is HVO Green D+ is a Good Choice for You?

  • It has a longer shelf life than fossil diesel
  • It can be used in ‘clean air zones’
  • It performs better in colder temperatures
  • It has better filterability than other diesel products
  • It’s compatible with existing storage vehicle and plant technology
  • It eliminates the headache of diesel bugs!
