What is HVO Fuel?
Hydrotreated vegetable oil, otherwise known as HVO, is the next-generation low-carbon diesel. It is derived from used cooking oils, residue animal fats from food processing, tall oil, and non-food grade crops. Biofuel, more generally, is a renewable source of energy that comes from plants, animals, or algae.
With the world shifting towards more sustainable practices to reduce climate change and protect the environment, HVO fuels have become a viable choice to help reduce diesel vehicle and plant emissions. It is considered a paraffinic fuel, a new classification of cleaner transport fuels, and has almost zero sulphur and aromatics content.
We at HVO Fuel UK only supply waste-derived HVO to the market. Waste-derived HVO is by far the most sustainable type of HVO and results in the lowest amount of greenhouse gas emissions.
