What is HVO?
HVO, which stands for Hydrotreated Vegetable Oil is one of the cleanest burning fuels available today. It’s a second-generation, synthetic, advanced renewable diesel that reduces up to 90% of net CO2 and significantly reduces nitrogen oxide (NOx), particulate matter (PM) and carbon monoxide (CO) emissions.
The renewable diesel meets EN 15940 standards and the Fuel Quality Directive 2009/30/EC Annex II, so it can be used as a drop-in alternative to regular white and red diesel. There’s no need to upgrade existing infrastructure – you can refuel and go! We do however, always recommend starting with a fresh batch of the fuel to ensure none of the superior characteristics are lost.
How is HVO made?
Hydrotreating vegetable oils is a modern way to produce high-quality diesel fuels from fully renewable materials which can be regrown when stock is needed. The crops used avoid damage to the environment, the natural ecosystem and the drive for global deforestation.
What can HVO be used for?
HVO fuel is widely used across a range of industries such as construction, data centres, rail, events and public transport.
HVO is commonly used in:
- Portable generators
- Commercial boilers
- Agricultural tractors and machinery
- Boasts and vessels operating within inland waterways
- Construction equipment and machinery
- Industrial trucks and tankers
- Roadgoing fleets
Does Crown Oil’s HVO contain palm oil?
At Crown Oil, we do not support the use or sale of palm oil-derived HVO and will only supply ISCC-verified waste-derived products into the market.
The Proof of Sustainability (POS) confirms the origin of raw material and ensures that users can verify the credentials of our renewable diesel. Our product does not contain any products that contribute to global deforestation and is therefore accepted by the RFTO. It also qualifies for further RFTO credits as it’s derived from 100% waste products.
