A pioneering role with HVO

To reduce CO2 emissions worldwide we are accelerating the use of sustainable energy carriers and phasing out fossil fuels. One the of the greatest fuels we use to reduce CO2 is HVO, a synthetic diesel, which is produced from the residue streams of the food industry or industrial processes. It is also a very sustainable fuel: it reduces CO2 emissions up to 89 percent and ensures clean combustion, both on land and water.

We support the acceleration of the energy transition by providing HVO in various ways.

If you consider that our goal is to make the total volume of FinCo more sustainable, then we need to produce and use a lot more HVO in the future. The government isn’t stimulating the scale of HVO sufficiently yet; there are no laws and regulations. That is why we want to take the lead. An important part of the automotive sector will be electrified by 2035 and we are obviously contributing, but until then, there is still so much CO2 to be saved. And HVO can play a major role in this.


Our Sales Manager Arno de Graaf explains: ‘We want to take a pioneering role and show that HVO can play a major part in CO2 reduction. We have a large commercial toolbox at our disposal and more than enough experience with the product to be sure that environment is really better off with more HVO.‘

An era of possibilities

In the next few years, we must do everything in our power to reduce CO2 emissions worldwide. We want to be a symbol for the transition that alle energy companies must go through. The course has changed and our sustainable product portfolio is transforming rapidly. We have the people, the resources and the innovate power to make a difference and contribute to a more sustainable world. But we can’t do this alone.

Bio-markets that don't yet exist

Rotterdam, 22 September 2022

The energy system of the future consists of all kinds of innovative solutions. These innovations differ per market segment and mode; road traffic requires different solutions than shipping and air transport. We therefore look at new sustainable feedstocks, as well as ground breaking conversion technologies to convert these feedstocks into various suitable energy carriers. That is why we are not only looking at liquid fuels, but also at hydrogen and electricity.
