Advanced Biofuels: Hydrotreated Vegetable Oils (HVO)

As a second-generation biofuel, EcoCeres’ HVO is a 100% renewable drop-in fuel produced by deoxygenating waste vegetable oils and animal fats and satisfies EN15940 standards with excellent cold flow properties. HVO can also be upgraded through our proprietary technologies to become SAF.

With a chemical composition that is quite similar to that of fossil diesel fuel, HVO can be used as a drop-in renewable fuel in existing diesel engine vehicles. Through comprehensive processing, waste greases are converted into HVO, which can reduce carbon emission by more than 80% compared with traditional diesel oil. HVO is crucial for meeting targets for renewable fuels in road transport in Europe, for instance, where the growing demand and a shortage of supply are presenting great opportunities for business.

Converting Waste Greases into HVO through Comprehensive Processing

Jiangsu Facility

EcoCeres manufactures green and renewable HVO using patented technology at a facility located in Jiangsu Province, China, which has a capacity for producing 300,000 tonnes of HVO/SAF a year. Both our HVO products and facilities have International Sustainability & Carbon Certification (ISCC), which enables the sale of these products to Europe.

Furthermore, a new HVO/SAF facility with a design capacity of 350,000 tonnes a year is under construction in Malaysia.
