“HVO” Hydrogenated Vegetable Oil is a certified net zero carbon fuel produced from waste cooking oils and fats. Homes currently on Kerosene heating can easily transition to this fuel with minor conversions to their existing system to make a true environmental change now.
Liquid biofuels in form of HVO is a true sustainable and sensible approach to off gas grid decarbonisation. Minimum capital expenditure for end user will mean greater uptake compared to complete invasive/disruptive works required to fit alternative energies for no actual benefit to homeowner nor environment.
HVO has an essential role to play and the deployment must be supported.
In this course we will cover:
- Decarbonisation with liquid fuels
- HVO for home heating
- Technical requirements
- Key guidance points
