Environmentally sustainable incineration now available with HVO BioFuel

Sustainability is one of the keywords that you will always see us using when talking about our machines. Incineration can often get a bad reputation from those that do not understand how in many aspects it can be the most environmentally friendly approach to disposing of some waste types.

Having a life expectancy of more than 20 years we are well aware of the structural sustainability of our machines but as the world moves away from traditional fossil fuels what does that mean for incineration? In the UK, Petrol and Diesel fuelled vehicles are being phased out over the next decade for electric versions. This approach is being mirrored across Europe and countries across the world. Purely electric incineration is not yet possible as you will always need combustible fuel to operate.

However, there are many alternatives to Diesel for fuel. Most commonly you will find many of our incinerators operating using LPG, Natural Gas, Kerosene and even recycling waste oil.

Biofuel has been an option that we have been investigating for some time now and are happy to announce that most of our machines are now able to be supplied with, or be upgraded to use HVO Biofuel (Hydrotreated Vegetable Oil) potentially the world’s purest and greenest fuel available.

What are the benefits of HVO BioFuel?

There are many reasons why you should consider using HVO Biofuel compared to more traditional fossil fuels such as Diesel or Natural gas.

The next level of sustainable HVO fuel will not run out in the same way that fossil fuel will. Crop based. The raw materials can be grown easily and without impacting the environment. In fact, the UK has more than 100,000 hectares of land just growing crops for such usage, a truly organic approach to carbon neutrality.

Additionally, HVO Biofuel is also produced from waste fats and vegetable oils providing a safe and sustainable approach for disposing of these end of life products. Creating the fuel through Hydrogenation and Isomerisation the resulting fuel is significantly less harmful than traditional diesel, cleaner-burning also means less wear and tear on the burners, reducing soot and emissions as a direct result of usage compared to dirtier ‘Natural’ fuels.

Cleaner and safer to use than traditional diesel and red diesel, HVO is a biodiesel that is 100% hydrocarbon (0% oxygen) meeting EN15940 standards for paraffinic fuels, as well as ASTM D975 19B and Fuel Quality Directive 2009/30/EC Annex II.

Using HVO lets you cut your greenhouse gas emissions by up to a massive 90%. Eliminates up to 90% of net CO2 and also drastically reduces nitrogen oxide (NOx), particulate matter (PM) and carbon monoxide (CO) emissions compared to other fuels.

We are now able to provide the option of selecting these new burners when ordering the machine or even by choosing to retrofit your existing incinerator/pet cremator.

HVO Biofuel is available from a range of suppliers and delivered in exactly the same way that standard fuels will be with one extra difference. Many suppliers have signed the tankers used to deliver the fuels to be carbon neutral meaning that this really is the greenest fuel possible.

Available to be used in all of our agricultural machines and pet cremation machines if you would like to learn more about your opportunities for reducing your greenhouse gasses by 90%, going carbon neutral and sustainable operation just get in touch and we can go through your options with you fully.
