From 1 February, all Waardlanden diesel vehicles will run on HVO100. HVO100 is a sustainable cleaner diesel variant made from spent vegetable and animal residues, such as oils and fats. The fuel reduces CO2 emissions and improves air quality. It is also better for the engines of cars.

Very low emissions

HVO100 is the cleanest fuel currently used in diesel engines. It is colourless, virtually odourless, clear as water and completely biodegradable. The new fuel, supplied by Wiersma Olie en Techniek, offers many advantages when it comes to sustainability. Fuelling with HVO100 saves up to 90% CO2 emissions compared to regular diesel. The fuel has very low emissions of gases such as particulates, hydrocarbons, nitrogen oxides and sulphur oxides.

Making waste and raw materials collection more sustainable

The switch to this new fuel is a nice step in making Waardlanden's fleet of vehicles more sustainable and thus waste and raw materials collection as a whole. Because the trucks pollute the local air quality less during operations. The fuel is also better for the engine, as filters and injectors stay clean longer. And no costly modifications are needed to existing diesel engines. HVO100 can be used directly in all diesel vehicles.
