(Hydrotreated Vegetable Oil)
We are the experts in the transition from fossil fuels to cleaner burning alternatives
WHAT IS HVO?
HVO stands for Hydrotreated Vegetable Oil. Is it produced from animal fats and vegetable oils. As compared to regular biodiesel Enzyme Energy HVO is synthesised from fats and vegetable oils which makes Enzyme Energy HVO a much more clean-burning fuel.
BENEFITS AND FEATURES
✓ CLEANER THAN RED DIESEL
Enzyme Energy HVO is 30% cleaner than red diesel, meaning that it is significantly better for the environment.
✓ SUSTAINABLE & RENEWABLE
Produced from 100% sustainable and renewable sources including: waste fats and vegetable oils.
✓ IMPROVED PERFORMANCE
Enzyme Energy HVO has a freezing point of -40oC meaning an improved start in colder conditions due to high cetane numbers.
✓ LESS MAINTENANCE
Reduced maintenance requirements with a storage life of over 10 years.
The Key benefits of HVO are:
The Key drawbacks of HVO are:
HVO FUEL OEM APPROVALS
Do my fuel lines need to be drained and clean before the transition?
This question is asked regularly and, it all depends on the amount of contamination within the existing fuel. The only way in which we can determine this is by completing a technical survey. This will show us the amount fuel contamination and will also tell us if the existing fuel tank is compatible with Enzyme Energy HVO.
What is a technical survey?
A technical survey is an in depth analysis of the entire fuel system(s). A technical survey is completed by one of our specialists at SDM Fuel Solutions, it enables us to analyse the quality of the fuel inside the tank and the condition of the fuel tank before replacing the existing fuel with Enzyme Energy HVO.
Why do you need a technical survey completed?
A technical survey is needed to show compatibility between the fuel system and Enzyme Energy HVO. Some fuel systems may need updating if the current system is not compatible. Another reason for completing a technical survey is to assess the amount of contamination, if any, present in the existing fuel.
Can Enzyme Energy HVO be mixed with existing fuel?
The answer to this question is yes however, at SDM Fuel Solutions we believe that from a technical perspective, the fuel should not be mixed without making the necessary amendments to the fuel system. This is because overtime, it could cause damage to the infrastructure. We believe that by removing existing fuel, thoroughly cleaning the tank, making the necessary amendments and then replacing the existing fuel with Enzyme Energy HVO works significantly better in the long run.
Can Enzyme Energy HVO be mixed with Enzyme Energy GTL?
The answer to this question is yes however, at SDM Fuel Solutions we believe that from a technical perspective, the fuel should not be mixed together. This is because once the two fuels are mixed, you will be unable to trace the fuel inside your tank.
What is Jetstream?
Jetstream is our innovative tank cleaning system. This is advised to be installed after the changeover to Enzyme Energy HVO as it is guaranteed to prevent fuel contamination.
