The journey to zero emissions is a long one. Maybe you have already heard about it and would like to transition. “Hydrotreated Vegetable Oil” is a diesel-like fuel that can be produced without fossil resources by processing renewable waste lipids.
HVO serves as a renewable and fossil-free fuel, offering significant sustainability advantages. It boasts an impressive CO2 reduction of up to 90% (well-to-wheel) and reduces emissions of pollutants like particulates, nitrogen, and sulfur. Moreover, HVO diesel has a minimal odor and is highly biodegradable.
VETUS has now given the green light for the D-LINE and M-LINE series engines to operate solely or in mixtures using the low-carbon, renewable paraffinic fuel known as HVO.
HVO, which stands for Hydrotreated Vegetable Oil, is a greener and more sustainable fuel alternative. Sustainable features of HVO fuel:
Moving towards reducing the environmental impact of boating, VETUS has now approved the D-LINE and M–LINE series of engines to run purely or in blends with the low carbon renewable paraffinic fuel HVO. The approval and certification come after thousands of hours of bench and field tests, to ensure no significant impact of the fuel to the performance, fuel consumption and maintenance schedule of the engines.
HVO is sourced from the same raw materials as biodiesel. However, it undergoes a hydrotreating process instead of the transesterification process typical of biodiesel. This difference enhances its oxidation stability, making HVO resistant to bacterial growth, unlike biodiesel.
