What is industrial heating oil (IHO?

Industrial heating oil is a blend of petroleum fractions and performance additives which provides a commercially attractive alternative to regular red diesel (gas oil).

IHO is a clean product manufactured from components that does not contain or include heavy metals, halogens, particulates, waste oils or residual fuel oils. It’s a light coloured, low odour product free from visible sediment. What’s more, it’s fully compliant with all the parameters set out in BS2869 Class D British Standard for heating oil (1000 ppm Gas Oil), with the exception of the cetane value.

Cetane value is the diesel equivalent of octane number in gasoline and provides a measure of the power output of the fuel, it is not of any significance for heat generation.
