Discover the Many Benefits of Switching to Our Advanced Renewable Diesel: HVO

Drop-in alternative for on and off-road diesel

With a paraffinic petrochemical structure, HVO meets EN 15940:2016 and ASTM D975 specifications, which means it can used as a drop-in alternative without needing to modify existing infrastructure – in most cases, you can simply top up and go!

Up to 10-year storage lifespan

HVO is 100% hydrocarbon (0% oxygen) which reduces the need for regular testing. It’s produced using a highly controlled hydrogenation and isomerisation process which removes impurities from the fuel, leaving a consistent, quality and paraffinic product. 

Cuts net CO2 by up to 90%

HVO fuel is synthesised through the hydrotreatment of vegetable oils, which eliminates up to 90% of net CO2 emissions and significantly reduces nitrogen oxide (NOx), particulate matter (PM) and carbon monoxide (CO).

Derived from certified waste sources

Crown HVO fuel is manufactured from carbon that dervies from certified waste products. What’s more, it’s ISCC (International Sustainability and Carbon Certificate) approved, ensuring both sustainability and product integrity.

FAME and fossil-free

HVO has zero FAME content so does not attract moisture, which encourages the growth of diesel bug. This means fewer filter changes and lower maintenance costs.

Clean burning fuel

HVO is free from aromatics, sulphur and metals, making it an extremely clean-burning fuel. What’s more, it reduces particulate production during combustion, reducing the ageing of engine oils whilst providing a more efficient burn.

Year-round performance

HVO has excellent low temperature performance, with a high cetane number of up to 90 and a low cloud point of -32oC, providing improved cold start performance, clean combustion, and less chance of waxing in extreme temperatures.

Approved for use by manufacturers

HVO fuel is a tried and tested product; it’s clean, safe and approved by a large number of OEMs for both on and off-road use! Please check your handbook or contact the manufacturer for confirmation.
