Hydro-Treated Vegetable Oil (HVO Renewable BioFuel) is a fuel that is 100% fossil fuel free. It is derived from lipids like vegetable oil, tallow, or used cooking oil. The production process involves hydro-treating these lipids, resulting in a low carbon fuel.
HVO offers a sustainable alternative to conventional diesel to fuel your car and it can be used as a replacement for kerosene with minor adjustments to your boiler.
