Hydrotreated Vegetable Oil (HVO)

Hydrotreated Vegetable Oil (HVO) is an advanced renewable diesel that offers a fast and simple step towards Net Zero, rather than the complex and expensive leap needed for electrification. With a large number of OEM approvals, the fuel can used without capital expenditure for changes to infrastructure, removing cost barriers and enabling a practical step towards decarbonisation.

Crown HVO is certified by the International Sustainability & Carbon Certification (ISCC). This ensures all raw materials are audited and checked to ensure the integrity of the product and provides an independent certification for the fuel’s environmental credentials.

We are also a member of the Renewable Fuel Assurance (RFAS) run by Zemo, which gives our customers a certificate every quarter for the previous quarter’s consumption.

Our in-house technical team provide free support and advice to ensure a completely seamless transition to HVO. What’s more, we provide full continuity of supply and deliver the product throughout the UK, utilising our fleet of HVO-fuelled tankers.
