What is HVO?

So, what is HVO fuel? Generally speaking, HVO fuel is considered a sustainable alternative to the more commonly used fossil fuels. Standing for “Hydrogenated Vegetable Oils”, the clue’s in the name. HVO fuel is produced through the hydro-processing of vegetable oils and fats. Free from oxygen, Sulphur and aromatics, HVO biodiesel is classed as a greener substitute to FAME (Fatty Acid Methyl Esters), due to lower NOx emissions and improved storage stability. It’s a win-win.

What is the biodiesel process?

Here at Aggreko, we offer co-processing services. But what is the biodiesel process? It’s pretty simple.

The canopy generators are basically used in the same way, however HVO biofuel is used as a drop-in to the pre-existing fossil fuels that are being used already. Therefore, the reduction in the level of fossil fuels used leads to extra environmental benefits.

What are the benefits of using HVO biodiesel?

Wondering what these benefits are? Using HVO biodiesel in your canopy generators can slash harmful NOx emissions by up to 25% - without any impact on the performance of your generators. But it doesn’t end there. Alongside cutting NOx emissions, HVO fuel also reduces particulate matter by up to 42% - all helping you to reach your goal of being more sustainable in your business.

As well as the significant environmental benefits, by using HVO biofuel you can also reduce the risk of costly downtime. Thanks to remote fuel management, refuelling is a simple and quick process with HVO biodiesel powering your generators. Worried that you won’t be able to use it with your generators? Don’t stress. If you use any diesel generators from Aggreko, we can ‘drop in’ HVO fuel.
