What Is HVO?

HVO is a 100% drop-in replacement for diesel in existing commercial diesel engines.

It has a wide range of OEM approvals meaning it can be used without needing any engine and machinery modification or retrofitting.

Manufactured from 100% renewable plant waste matter, Hydrotreated Vegetable Oil (HVO) is a paraffinic drop-in fuel designed as a direct replacement for diesel.

HVO Provides An Instant 90% Reduction Of
CO2 Emissions.

Unlike conventional biodiesel, hydrogen (rather than methanol) is used as a catalyst, making it cleaner than any other fossil fuel alternative currently available. HVO provides full lifecycle greenhouse gas (GHG) emission savings of up to 90% when compared to conventional diesel. Direct emissions from burning HVO are considered to be zero – or ‘carbon neutral’.

HVO is ideal for on and off-road vehicles across a range of industries including construction, agriculture, road and rail transport, haulage, marine and the public sector
