Here are some tips and advice on the best time to buy home heating oil.
Lower Your Carbon Emissions By Up To 90% With Certa GD+ HVO
A 100% drop-in replacement for diesel in commercial engines.
What Is HVO?
HVO (Hydrotreated Vegetable Oil) is a low-carbon biofuel that operates as a direct replacement for conventional diesel. It is made from renewable, sustainable raw materials – all of which do not release any new CO2 into the atmosphere. HVO can be used as a direct replacement for diesel without any need for vehicle or engine modifications.
HVO is made from 100% renewable plant-waste matter, and meets bio content requirements with no FAME (Fatty Acid Methyl Ester) included. This ensures that it avoids the instability and operability issues seen by many low blend diesel fuels and high blend biofuels. Unlike conventional biodiesel, hydrogen is used as a catalyst instead of methanol, which makes HVO cleaner burning. and ensures a longer shelf life.
Certa HVO is produced and accredited to meet the international fuel standard BS EN 15940, the specification for paraffinic diesel, and the Fuel Quality Directive 2009/30/EC Annex II.
The Quickest Way To Go Fossil-Free
- HVO (Hydrotreated Vegetable Oil) is a fully renewable and sustainable fuel
- Renewable, sustainable and 100% biodegradable: synthesised from waste fats and vegetable oils
- Reduces notifiable particulate matter (PM) and nitrogen oxide (NOx) emissions: improved air quality
- Up to 90% lower greenhouse gas emissions
- Can be mixed with regular diesel
- Superior cold weather performance, down to -30 degrees
- Excellent storage features – does not lose quality
How Does Pricing Compare Between HVO And Diesel?
The true unit cost of HVO fuel is higher than regular diesel. However, when you consider the bigger picture, HVO offers the quickest and most cost-effective solution for businesses to efficiently reduce carbon footprints, with a 90% net reduction in CO2 emissions.
Offsetting the cost of retrofitting machinery, HVO is emerging as a popular option for existing and prospective clients alike. Certa supply GD+ HVO to businesses across Ireland at a competitive rate
This carbon footprint reduction in a commercial fleet can have significant taxation and ESG impacts for your business. As HVO is largely exempt from carbon tax increases, the savings accrued with the use of commercial HVO are set to increase in the coming years. Tax on diesel will likely increase consistently until a complete transition to alternative fuels has been made, which would make HVO the more cost-effective solution in the long term, along with its countless other benefits.
What is the difference between Certa HVO and Certa GD+?
