Circle K’s milesBIO HVO 100 is produced using the byproducts and residues of biomass cultivation processes and production processes, which results in a carbon-neutral biomass. This means milesBIO HVO100 is a fossil-free biofuel made from waste and by-products from the food industry, not intended for human consumption.
On an average, a liter of fossil diesel results in a total CO2 emission of approximately 3,41 kg including production, transportation, and final combustion. As HVO renewable diesel uses byproducts and residues of biomass cultivation processes and production processes, it avoids their destruction that would result in higher CO2 emissions and significant environmental impacts, meaning the net contribution of HVO can be as low as approximately 0,35 kg CO2 equivalent per liter fuel.
milesBIO HVO100 is approved to meet standards set out in EN15940, which is the industry standard for the suitability of fuel for use in diesel vehicles.
