HVO and GTL
The new generation liquid fuels for more sustainable future.
Moving forward, we believe that HVO and GTL are viable, more sustainable fuel options for the future of the fuel industry due to their compatibility with the current diesel fuel infrastructure.
With the ambitious government's plans to reduce emissions by 78% by 2035, the fuel industry needs to adapt quickly and consider new-generation fuels such as HVO and GTL as a viable option for a more environmentally friendly solution. These greener fuels have easily become a preferable option compared to other alternative energy sources such as electricity as they do not have serious drawbacks that result in infrastructure cost, spending money and time on staff training and even new vehicles.

Are you considering going green?
If you’re considering going green, HVO is an easy “drop in replacement” of traditional diesel fuel as they are fully compatible with the already in place diesel fuel infrastructure and equipment, saving costs for the end user over alternatives like electricity. Here are some of the benefits of switching to HVO:
- Up to 90% reduction in net CO2 emissions
- No FAME content unlike traditional biofuels
- Shelf life of up to 10 years without fuel degradation
- Produces less noise, smoke and odour
- Higher cetane number (up to 90) and low cloud point (-32OC) provides better starting performance, clean combustion and less chance of waxing in extremely cold weather.
- Help establish your company as environmentally friendly and one that cares for their employees and the community.
