HVO Oil: The Sustainable Fuel Solution

As the world moves towards cleaner energy alternatives, Sweeney Oil is embracing the future of sustainable fuel and a greener future. We are proud to announce that we will be introducing the first-ever HVO fuel pump in Galway at our service station in Headford Road.

What is HVO?

HVO is a diesel-like fuel that can be produced without fossil resources. 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 with properties similar to traditional diesel. HVO offers a sustainable alternative to conventional diesel, reducing greenhouse gas emissions and promoting a cleaner future.

Environmental Benefits of HVO

90% reduction in emissions – significantly reducing your carbon footprint!

Reduced CO2 Emissions

HVO fuel has significantly lower carbon emissions compared to regular diesel. It can achieve up to 90% reduction in lifecycle greenhouse gas emissions. By choosing HVO, you contribute to mitigating climate change and improving air quality. 

Improved Air Quality 

HVO has limited aromatic and sulphur content, resulting in reduced emissions of harmful pollutants such as particulate matter, nitrogen oxides (NOx), and sulphur oxides (SOx). By using HVO, you help create cleaner air for everyone in your community.

Where can I use HVO?

Using HVO is as simple as using traditional diesel. You can fill up your vehicle or equipment at our service station in Headford Road, the first service station in Galway with a HVO pump. 

HVO can be used in various areas, including:


HVO is suitable for use in both light-duty and heavy-duty vehicles, including cars, trucks, buses, and even marine vessels. It offers a cleaner fuel option for your daily commuting or long-haul transportation needs.

Construction and Agriculture

HVO can power construction machinery, agricultural equipment, and generators used on job sites. By choosing HVO, you contribute to reducing emissions in these industries and supporting sustainable practices.

Backup Power Generation

HVO can be used in standby generator sets to provide reliable backup power during emergencies or power outages. It ensures that critical facilities have access to clean and sustainable energy when it’s needed the most.

Join the HVO Revolution

By choosing HVO, you make a conscious decision to support sustainable fuel alternatives and contribute to a greener future. We are excited to introduce HVO at our Headford road service station and provide you with a cleaner and more environmentally friendly fuel option.

Stay tuned for updates on our website and social media channels for the official launch of our HVO fuel pumps. Together, let’s make a positive impact on our environment by embracing the power of HVO.
