Benefits of HVO Fuel

Up to 90% reduction in net CO2 greenhouse emissions: significantly better for the environment  than regular diesel or bio diesel 

Renewable, sustainable and 100% biodegradable: synthesised from waste fats and vegetables

Drop-in replacement for regular diesel & gas oil: meets EN15940 standard for paraffinic fuels and Fuel Quality Directive 2009/30/EC Annex II. A wide range of OEM approvals means it can often be used without needing engine and machinery modification

Excellent cold-weather performance: higher cetane number (up to 90) and low cloud point provides better starting performance, clean combustion and less chance of waxing in extreme temperatures

High flash point: improved safety, storage and handling compared to regular diesel

Reduced need for regular testing: impurities are removed during the production process, eliminating the key factors for fuel degradation and increasing shelf life to around 10 years. 

Fueling positive changes

HVO also known as Renewable Diesel, is fossil-free paraffinic diesel fuel that can be used as a direct replacement for mineral diesel with up to 90% lower net CO2 emissions.

Our HVO is derived from 100% certified waste materials and is produced from traceable feedstocks.  The product is manufactuered by suppliers who are approved and regulated by the ZEMO Partnership program, who operate the Renewable Fuels Assurance Scheme (RFAS) meaning the GHG emission savings data is both tracable and credible.

Compass Fuels has invested in new depot infrastructure to allow us to offer the same excellent service that our customers are used to, including emergency same-day and next-day deliveries.

HVO Fuel vs Fame bio diesel

The comparison between HVO and FAME biodiesel is like a heavyweight boxing match in the world of sustainable fuels. In one corner, we have HVO (Hydro Vegetable Oil), the clean-cut champion of sustainability, boasting lower emissions and compatibility with all diesel engines. 

In the other corner, we have FAME (Fatty Acid Methyl Ester) biodiesel – a more traditional contender with its own set of merits but also some significant drawbacks such as susceptibility to cold weather.  

When it comes to choosing between these two titans for your fuel needs, remember this: HVO may be pricier than FAME biodiesel but offers superior performance and environmental benefits.
