HVO - Fossil Free Fuel

100% renewable

HVO is the premium fossil-free alternative sustainable fuel that is made up of 100% renewable raw materials.
It can be used in any diesel engine now and is currently being trialled as a green replacement for domestic heating oil.

The fuel of the future that's available today........

What is HVO?

HVO Renewable Diesel is a fossil-free diesel product made of 100% renewable raw materials, which does not release any new carbon dioxide into the atmosphere.

HVO has a chemical structure almost identical to regular diesel and has been certified as a sustainable fuel by the International Sustainability and Carbon Certification (ISCC) 

HVO can be used as a drop-in alternative to fossil diesel, meeting EN 15940 standards and Fuel Quality Directive 2009/30/EC Annex II. There is no need to modify existing infrastructure

HVO How is it made?

HVO (hydrotreated vegetable oil) is produced through a two-staged hydroprocessing process of vegetable oil and certified waste fats.

First, the Vegetable oils/animal fats are hydrotreated. This involves adding hydrogen to convert unsaturated compounds into saturated alkanes (paraffins).

Alkane isomerisation and cracking in the second stage brings the biofuel to a quality that equals or surpasses specifications for conventional petroleum fuels.

Can HVO help reach net zero?

The UK Government aims to reduce vehicle greenhouse gas emissions to net zero by 2050 under its Road to Zero strategy.

HVO is a greener renewable fuel with a chemical structure almost identical to regular diesel which will help our journey to net zero.

It is also non-toxic and non-carcinogenic.  and has been certified as a sustainable fuel by the International Sustainability and Carbon Certification (ISCC) offering net greenhouse gas CO2 reductions of up to 90%.

HVO as Heating Oil (Trial)

Introducing the HVO renewable liquid heating oil trial.

Why trial HVO for domestic heating? 

HVO is avaliable today, is non-toxic and biodegradable. and could save up to 90% net greenhouse gas CO2 emissions.

As it has a very similar chemical structure to regular kerosene we believe you could use it in your existing heating system with minimal costly modifications unlike the alternatives currently being proposed by Government.

Future Ready Fuel

Future Ready Fuel

Future Ready Fuel Campaign

The Government is currently backing Air Source Heat Pumps, Ground / Water Source Heat Pumps, and Biomass Boilers. The average cost to switch to these alternatives varies between between £9k -£19k with significant changes needed to your home and heating system. In contrast, HVO trails have shown conversion costs of circa £500 with minimal changes need to your heating system.

UKIFDA and OFTEC have created the "Future Ready Fuel" campaign to inform heating oil customers about HVO and have conducted trials to establish the cost and viability of switching from kerosene to HVO in the future to heat your home and power your cooker. Please note that HVO Heating Oil is only available on trials at the moment.

CPS Fuels in working with UKIFDA and OFTEC in these trials and fully supports the Future Ready Fuel campaign to inform heating oil customers about HVO. We will share with you the results of the trials and the progress being made as we all work together to encourage Government to consider the place this renewable liquid fuel has in the future to heat your home and power your cooker. 

We cannot do this alone and we would encourage you to learn more about HVO for heating on the Future Fuels website and also ask you to write to your local MP to lobby them so that the HVO fuel is included in future government policy.

With industry and consumers working together we believe we can get the Government to endorse HVO.
