Sustainable HVO 100 diesel fuel is already available at six UTA acceptance points in Germany, with more to follow. UTA customers can obtain HVO 100 at three Zieglmeier stations in the Ingolstadt area; at two Wirtz stations in the Ruhr area; and at a bft station on the A40 near Venlo on the German-Dutch border.
A diesel fuel made from hydrotreated vegetable oil, HVO 100 has recently been in the spotlight because it enables the climate-friendly operation of combustion engine vehicles and is sustainably produced from food and agricultural waste.
For legal reasons, HVO 100 is not yet sold at commercial fuel stations in Germany. However, it can be purchased in canisters or barrels, and sales in Germany are likely to begin by the end of 2023 after the German government passes an amendment to the Federal Emission Control Ordinance (“Bundesemissionsschutzverordnung“).
In other countries, HVO 100 is available without restriction. Within UTA Edenred’s European network, HVO 100 can be obtained at 327 stations in 11 European countries, including Austria, the Netherlands, Belgium, Northern European countries, and Baltic states – in addition to Germany.
