What is HVO biodiesel?
HVO (Hydrotreated Vegetable Oil) biodiesel is a form of renewable diesel that has been produced from vegetable fats and oils. Unlike regular biodiesel, hydrogen is used as a catalyst in the creation process instead of methanol. This makes it a more clean-burning, environmentally friendly diesel alternative, without the short shelf life of regular biodiesel.
We have a short video explaining more about HVO Biodiesel
What’s the difference between HVO biodiesel and regular biodiesel?
The production process is the main element that differentiates HVO with regular biodiesel. While biodiesel uses methanol as a catalyst in the esterification process, HVO uses hydrogen as a catalyst instead. As a result of using hydrogen, it leads to a hydrogenation process instead of esterification. Hydrogenation removes the oxygen from the fuel, while esterification fails to do that.
Why is HVO biodiesel becoming so popular?
One of the main hurdles that biodiesel producers have been trying to overcome is the sustainability of their fuel.
Because regular biodiesel involves an esterification process that fails to remove oxygen from the diesel, it increases the chances of oxidation, which leads to contamination. This is why biodiesel has to be closely monitored to make sure it is still usable.
HVO biodiesel is created through a hydrogenation process, which means that all of the oxygen is removed from the oils. This makes it much more likely to last longer in the tank than biodiesel.
How does HVO biodiesel compare to other fuels?
In a large number of areas, HVO is actually superior to other forms of fuel.
The table below compares the different characteristics of HVO biodiesel, FAME, and regular diesel.
|Distillation Level, C||200 – 350||340 – 355||200 – 320|
|Cetane Level||51||50 – 65||70 – 90|
|Stability from Oxydation||Average||Below Average – Poor||Excellent|
