Categories: LIGHT EQUIPMENT, SOIL AND ASPHALT COMPACTORS
LANGENTHAL, Switzerland – Hydrotreated vegetable oil (HVO) has been approved for use in all Ammann diesel-burning machines.
HVO reduces gas CO2 emissions by up to 90%, with no additional costs.
HVO is a biofuel made from waste, such as animal fat or processed vegetable oils. It is classified as a renewable diesel and renowned for having a longer shelf life than other biodiesels.
Every 1000 litres of standard diesel fuel burned produces ca. 2640 kg of greenhouse gas CO2, compared to just 260 kg of greenhouse gas CO2 for every 1000 litres of HVO burned.
