What Is HVO?
Manufactured from 100% renewable plant-waste matter, Hydrotreated Vegetable Oil (HVO) is a paraffinic drop-in fuel that can be used as a direct replacement for diesel without any need for a vehicle or engine modifications.
Certa HVO is a premium, high-quality diesel fuel made from renewable, sustainable raw materials – all of which do not release any new CO2 into the atmosphere. HVO meets bio content requirements with no FAME included and, to that point, 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.
How Does Pricing Compare Between HVO And Diesel?
Certa can supply the HVO renewable diesel alternative to businesses across Ireland at a competitive rate, which we constantly monitor within 48 hours. In terms of price per litre, HVO fuel does have a premium over regular diesel, however, it offers up to 90% reduced net CO2 emissions without the cost of changing hardware.
This dramatic carbon footprint reduction in a commercial fleet can have significant taxation and ESG impacts for your company. 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 fossil 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.
In the short term, much of the premium that HVO currently stands at will be offset by the average decrease of 10% in Adblue® consumption when compared to diesel-fueled vehicles.
What is the difference between Certa HVO and Certa GD+?
At Certa, we are proud to offer both HVO and GD+ as low-carbon, high performance, direct diesel alternatives for our commercial clients.
GD+ is a premium quality fossil-free fuel. It is HVO, but with an organic additive that allows it to produce the lowest emission figures on the market. GD+ meets the European standard EN15940.
We ensure no palm oil is used in our HVO fuels, meaning fuel usage is not associated with any contribution to deforestation. We also ensure no substitution from other fuel sources and that we supply you with the purest and cleanest HVO possible from 100% plant-waste matter.
