HVO biodiesel

Driving towards
a better future

Reducing our impact on the environment is ingrained in our DNA. And on the road to net zero, Ancotrans is investing heavily in a wide portfolio of sustainable transport services, such as electric truck transport, HVO fuel, intermodal transports, and CO2-offsetting initiatives.

HVO biodiesel

HVO (Hydrotreated Vegetable Oil) is a revolutionary and renewable biodiesel that significantly reduces CO2 emissions. Its carbon footprint measures at an impressively low 0,11 kg CO2/km (or 0.35178 kg CO2/litre fuel), meaning that a HVO truck has an 85% lower CO2 emission compared to a standard diesel truck – thereby offering a cleaner and more sustainable transport solution.


In addition to its environmental benefits, HVO holds practical upsides to its use as well:

  • Compatibility with existing diesel engines: HVO can be used as a drop-in replacement for traditional diesel fuel without requiring any modifications to existing diesel engines or infrastructure.


  • Improved engine performance: HVO offers enhanced lubricity properties compared to regular diesel fuel, which can contribute to better engine performance and reduced wear and tear on engine components. This can lead to improved fuel efficiency and longer engine life.


  • Potential for blending: HVO can be easily blended with regular diesel fuel in various ratios, allowing for flexible usage and gradual adoption.


Contribute to offsetting the carbon footprint of your
transport container by joining our Ugandan AncoForest project.

If you opt for this service, we will apply a green surcharge equivalent to the cost required to offset the CO2 emissions for each kilometre of your transport. This surcharge is then utilized to plant trees in the Ugandan AncoForest project, with each tree capable of absorbing up to 3 tonnes of CO2 in just 20 years – that’s 43% of our 2022 total carbon emissions. Making it a simple and cost-effective way to reduce your environmental impact.
