Hydrotreated Vegetable Oil (HVO), also known as renewable biodiesel, is produced via catalytic hydroprocessing of oil and fats.
HVO is produced from a wide variety of raw materials containing triglycerides and fatty acids, including waste and residual material such as used cooking oil, acid oil, animal fats (tallow), fatty acid distillate and POME.
Raw materials must be cleaned before processing for hydrotreating to ensure the longevity of the catalyst used in hydrotreating and increase the life of the downstream process plant.
Pre-treatment involves degumming, adsorption and deacidification to remove metal contaminants, fatty matter and PEG from the feedstock.
HVO is a green renewable fuel that can be used in aeroplanes, cars, trucks, boats, boilers and diesel generator sets
