reduce generator emissions
There is now more pressure than ever on business in the public and private sector for business to become more sustainable and reduce their carbon footprints to prevent further damage from climate change.

Targeting generator emission reduction is now a key strategy to reduce environmental impact and climate change and a range of solutions are now being adopted for power generation including improving diesel engine efficiency, exhaust catalysts and diesel particulate filters and alternative fuels to name a few examples.

There could never be a better time to make the switch HVO fuel to effortlessly achieve reductions without any further investment or upgrades needed for your diesel generator.

FAQ's.

HVO is manufactured using refined and recycled waste vegetable oils.
Unlike conventional diesel that can only be stored for up to 12 months, HVO fuel is capable of being stored for up to 10 years! This in our opinion is the main benefit to asset owners as it significantly reduces the likelihood of diesel fuel contamination.
HVO fuel is non-toxic and odourless. It is also completely biodegradable which helps prevent soil contamination in the unfortunate event of spills.
Yes. HVO can be mixed with regular diesel with no issues. We advise allowing your regular diesel in your generator tank to drain down to approx 20 %. The reason for this is because with higher mix ratios the effects on the generator emissions reduction is reduced.

90% of engine failure is due to contaminated fuel

Poor quality diesel or contaminated diesel is the largest single cause of engine failure. Contamination is frequently a result of water or bacteria in the fuel which is caused by a break down of the FAME composition when subjected to water vapours and bacteria in the storage tank.

When conventional diesel is stored for long periods of time in your generator fuel tank, it is likely to become contaminated and can cause serious damage to your engine by seizing pistons and fuel pumps and blocking injectors. HVO has no FAME content and is manufactured using a completely different process.

The composition of HVO fuel allows it to be stored for up to 10 years as it is much more resistant to water contamination and bacteria.

This ultimately protects your diesel generator engine from any potential damage from poor fuel and can save fortunes on treating or replacing contaminated diesel.
